Consultation delayed on Wiltshire fire service merger

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Consultation delayed on Wiltshire fire service merger Consultation delayed on Wiltshire fire service merger

Public consultation on the proposed merger of Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service with Dorset Fire Service has been postponed.

The consultation was due to begin on Monday but at a meeting yesterday the Wiltshire and Swindon Fire Authority, comprising Wiltshire and Swindon Borough councillors, decided to postpone it.

It is understood they want more time to go through the paperwork for the consultation.

An official statement is due to be released by Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service later.

I have heard that the Chairman of the Fire Authority, Councillor Graham Payne, has lost his position. There is something very political going on here.

It is to be hoped that those playing politics with the fire service will not put the good service that the people of Swindon and and Wiltshire have had for years in serious jeopardy. We do not want fire stations to close and fire risks increase.
