Fire Authority votes on Draft Fifth London Safety Plan

21 January 2013

Members of London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority met today (Monday, 21 January) to discuss the draft Fifth London Safety Plan. 

An amendment was made by Labour members, which was  supported by Liberal Democrat and Green members of the Authority.

The amendment means the Authority has not agreed to consultation on the part of the plan that deals with the closure of fire stations, or loss of appliances or firefighters.

Over the coming days, the London Fire Commissioner Ron Dobson will be discussing with officers what this means in terms of setting the Authority’s budget and finding the savings of £45m that are still needed over the next two years.
