Every year we provide essential day-to-day services for residents of all seven districts in Lincolnshire from our £1billion budget.
This includes filling potholes, funding the library service, making sure children have the best start in life and providing the trading standards and fire and rescue services – to name a few.
We also spend £230 million every year helping over 32,000 people including older people and those who need support with their mental health, sensory impairment and physical or learning disabilities.
But in addition, we have invested hundreds of millions of pounds in recent years, improving and expanding facilities for residents in every district.
Some key priorities across the county have been:
- schools – providing more places and better facilities, including special needs provision
- superfast broadband – vital to keep you connected and help businesses grow
- roads: building new roads, and re-building and resurfacing existing ones – reducing congestion and improving safety
- new fire engines – with further investment in state of the art fire and rescue equipment
- construction projects – to grow our economy
