More consultations launched into services

Consultations have been launched into a number of services delivered by Lancashire County Council.

People are being asked to have their say about proposed changes to the Active Lives Healthy Weight scheme, stop smoking services, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and the Integrated Home Improvement Service.

Last week councillors approved a package of measures to reduce an anticipated deficit at the council to £46m by 2022/23.

Some of the proposals require consultations to take place before a final decision is made by members.

County Councillor Geoff Driver CBE, leader of Lancashire County Council, said: “While it is essential that as a council we balance the books, we do have sufficient flexibility in the budget to amend it if we are persuaded to do so by the results of these consultations.

“We genuinely want to hear people’s views on these proposed changes and the cabinet will consider all the responses very carefully before making a decision later in the year.

“We remain committed to providing the best services we can to the people of Lancashire, and particularly to protecting services for the most vulnerable in our communities.”
