 CLIMATE EMERGENCY

Ottery St Mary has declared a Climate Emergency as it is committed to making changes to ensure that the Town does everything possible to contribute to a cleaner and better future for the next generations.

We need volunteers to be part of the Working Group.  This committee will take advice from experts, carry out its own research, talk to their neighbours and work out what Ottery St Mary can do to make a difference.  It will also report back to the Full Council with a series of proposals and ideas for the Council to enact. 

PROPOSED DEVON & SOMERSET FIRE & RESCUE SERVICE CHANGES - 12 WEEK CONSULTATION 

Following the announcement of proposed changes to Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service which were presented to the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Fire Authority on Friday 28th June 2019, the Fire Authority has agreed a 12 week consultation period and are very interested in hearing local citizens and stakeholders views on these proposed changes for a new service delivery operating model.

 

Under the new proposals, the Service would seek to move underused resources from where the risk is low and invest more into work to reach the most vulnerable members of society and help keep them safe.  This includes proposed closures of a number of fire stations where risk and activity is low and the removal of fire engines that are underused.
