County council reaction to comprehensive spending review
25 November 2020Commenting on the Chancellor’s statement today, county council leader Councillor Andrew Proctor said: “I welcome the Chancellor’s statement today and its focus on protecting lives and livelihoods.
“We need to beat coronavirus and get our economy moving again. Infrastructure spending and the levelling up fund are very welcome and I’m keen to get our fair share for Norfolk. I’m delighted the Third River Crossing in Great Yarmouth has been approved.
“I await further details of the £3 billion that will be provided for councils. Any additional funding is welcome but I am still pressing for longer term, sustainable, fair funding. The adult social care precept, while welcome, is not a long-term solution.
“We will look at the detail and give further commentary in due course.”
