Support Your Volunteer Councillors

We call on North Lincolnshire Council to support our towns and reconsider the slashing of 67 unpaid Town Councillor positions that was voted for on 19th September 2017.

Why is this important?

This affects the towns of Barton, Bottesford, Brigg, Broughton, Crowle & Ealand, Epworth, Kirton in Lindsey & Winterton.

We believe its important to support volunteers in our community as our unpaid Town Councillors are and in doing so oppose slashing their numbers in half by cutting 67 volunteer posts.

These volunteer councillors are people from all abilities and backgrounds who freely give up their time to come together to do their bit to make our towns better places for the future.

Democracy and accountability are important, cutting these numbers wont save money but will harm the councils ability to function fully and support the communities as they do now.

Reasons for signing

  • Because I live in one of the areas affected!
  • I have signed, because North alincolnshire Council seem to have a grievance with our town. Slashing councilors, charging us more council tax and giving us less services than others. Agreeing to an outrageous amount of new builds and not considering their impact. I've had enough!
  • is this what the Tories mean by taking back control? Less democratic accountability
