Public consultation over fire authority opened
PUBLISHED: 17:00 10 March 2018
An online public consultation has opened over how an emergency service should be run following a damning report which unearthed ‘failings in leadership and culture’.
Avon Fire Authority is seeking public views over how its leadership should be shaped in future.
A report, published in July 2017, recommended the authority shrink its 25-strong membership by around half.
The Home Office report, which highlighted ‘endemic’ bullying, also proposed members of the authority should be limited to two four-year terms on the committee.
The committee, which governs the region’s fire services, also wants public opinions on proposals to change how it appoints its members.
The deadline for responses is March 26, and the authority will make a decision on the proposals at its annual meeting in June.
