As part of the financial settlement announced in December 2016 the government offered fire and rescue authorities a four-year funding settlement in return for robust efficiency plans. The content of this plan was drawn from other documents such as the medium-term financial plan (MTFP), the safety and wellbeing plan and the customer and corporate plan. The authority’s plan for 2016/17-2019/20 can be seen below. Annual updates to the information in the efficiency plan can be found in the MTFP.
The Authority publishes an efficiency statement annually which is included as an annex to the customer and corporate plan. The 2018/19 efficiency statement was approved by the authority on 18 April 2018 and can be viewed below.
