Sussex Police Funding Update

on .

Sussex Police Logo 1200x1354Sussex Police funding 2018-2022

Sussex Police have started the biggest intake of new police officers for over a decade. This has been made possible by the increase in police precept of an average £12 for a band D property, and the PCC releasing £17 million from reserves. It means that over the next four years, Sussex will have 200 more police officers on the frontline than it does today.

Although residents are pleased to hear that local policing will be strengthened by these 200 extra officers, they are already indicating that they would like even more. That is why the PCC has opened a survey on her website to gauge potential support for raising more funding locally if the Government lifts the current cap on the police precept.

District Council invites you to Join the Let's Talk Panel

on .

Let's Talk Panel 456 x 285pxResidents across Chichester District are being encouraged to join a special panel aimed at seeking the views and opinions of households in the area.

The Let’s Talk Panel is being launched by Chichester District Council as a way of finding out about the issues that matter most to residents, and gives people the chance to find out about the various consultations and surveys that take place throughout the year. People can sign up and find out more at www.chichester.gov.uk/letstalkpanel

As well as the online opportunities, the council will also be organising events and focus groups to give Let’s Talk Panel members the opportunity to get more involved in some of the projects that the council is working on.

“We know how important it is to gather feedback and views from our residents and businesses, which is why we are launching the Let's Talk Panel,” says Councillor John Connor, Cabinet Member for Promotion and Events. “We want to make sure that as many people as possible are aware of the surveys and consultations that we hold. They are often used to help our councillors make key decisions and our councillors will take account of people’s views before making a final decision. Residents’ feedback also helps us to improve our services and identify new ideas and ways of doing things.

“Once people sign up to the panel, we can let them know what's going on and how they can get involved. People can be involved as little or as much as they like, and they can choose what to respond to.

“We can also let panel members know when we will be organising focus groups and events such as coffee mornings. These events will provide an opportunity for residents to find out even more about how they can get involved with shaping some of the work we are undertaking. For example in recent years, we convened a recycling focus group and the residents who were part of it made a real difference to how we approached our recycling campaign, which has been extremely successful as a result.

“I look forward to seeing as many people as possible signing up to our Let’s Talk Panel.”

Residents and businesses can view all of the live surveys and consultations from partner organisations by visiting www.chichester.gov.uk/letstalksurveys results can be found at www.chichester.gov.uk/letstalkresults
