Fairer Funding for Lincolnshire

Caythorpe and Frieston Parish Council are joining other councils in Lincolnshire to campaign for a fairer funding deal for our area.  If councils here received the average funding for the council areas in England the region would benefit from £116 million extra funding for service every year.

This could help pay for new infrastructure and valued council services.  For example £116 million could pay for a bypass scheme, improvements to key roads, fibre broadband for all businesses and more, every year.

Councils in Lincolnshire have seen huge cuts to their Government funding and the cost of providing services is increasing.  Council leaders are meeting with local MPs and government ministers to set out the case strongly for a fair deal for Lincolnshire.

You can help Lincolnshire councils get more money for your local services by contacting your MP and joining the campaign for fair funding at

25/01/18 Update - Attached to this page is further correspondence from Cllr Martin Hill, Leader of Lincolnshire County Council, regarding the Fairer Funding Deal for Lincolnshire campaign.
