Fire Cuts Set to Go Ahead


In the final report to Hampshire Fire Authority before making their decision on the 24th February, swathing cuts to the busy Southsea Fire Station are set to go ahead despite £0.9m found to alleviate cuts elsewhere in the county.

Th Conservative dominated Fire Authority have dismissed the petition headed by Local Campaigners Tom Wood and Cllr Margaret Foster opposing the cuts signed by more than 3000 local residents.

"Why was it okay for Southampton Council Leader to oppose the proposed cuts to their Fire Service and win, when our Council Leader said we should just go along with the proposals?", Central Southsea Ward Campaigner Steve Pitt asked today.
