Last chance to complete our community safety consultation survey
By 2017/18 government funding will have been cut by almost 50%. This, coupled with changes like the increased cost of living and an ageing population, means making tough choices about funding local services. The Council works with a range of agencies to reduce crime and make Camden a safer place. We currently spend £5 million each year on community safety and crime reduction services. In December 2015 our Cabinet agreed to reduce this figure by 25% as part of a package of proposals developed following consultation with residents to meet our tough financial challenge.
This reduction will mean that we cannot continue to deliver services in the same way and we need to rethink the way we provide community safety services. Over the past seven weeks we have been consulting with residents on how we could prioritise our reduced resources.
There is just one week left until the consultation closes.
We want to hear from as many people as possible about how we can make the greatest difference with our available funding. You can find out more and have your say at camden.gov.uk/communitysafetyreview. Printed copies are also available from Camden libraries.
The consultation closes at 5pm on Tuesday 12 July.
