  • Stop Lincolnshire County Council cutting funding for local bus services
    UPDATE - 28/03/16 - We Won! We were planning a demonstration at the full council budget meeting, but 2 days before this, the Council announced it had received extra funding for the next 2 years for these vital bus services. I just want to say a big THANK YOU to all of you that got in touch, signed and shared this petition - I do not think we could have forced Lincolnshire County Council into a major rethink and change of heart, without your support. It shows that when many people stand with a united voice, change is possible. You can watch my speech at full council here from 7 mins - 12 mins https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfXRq3OoIOg

I’ll be announcing further details on business rates reforms shortly.
