6:00am Monday 14th October 2013 in News
A CASH boost of £420,000 has been awarded to authorities in Cheshire to fund partnership work.
The Government money is to support the four councils, police, probation and fire service, in setting up shared services.
It is part of £6.9million funding announced on Tuesday awarded to 18 council across the country which have shown interest in restructuring.
Minister say the Transformation Challenge Award will speed up services.
Local Government Minister Brandon Lewis said: “While councils have a vital role to play in tackling the inherited deficit, the government has always been clear councils should not close services. Instead councils should demonstrate the best in innovation and ministers will champion councils that successfully redesign services.”
