Essex County Fire and Rescue Service


2020 Options for Change 2016-2020 Consultation Results

A document which outlines the methods, results and findings of the largest consultation Essex County Fire and Rescue has ever carried out has been published today.

The 2020 Change 2016-2020 Consultation was launched on February 1 and ran for 12 weeks. It asked people to give a view on which of three possible options for the future they preferred. More than 17,000 people responded to the questions posed.

The report, which was created by Opinion Research Services, analysed data from consultation responses, petitions and letters received by the Service as well as a series of focus group sessions. It presents the opinions of residents and stakeholders across Essex on the proposed options for change.

A full set of papers will be published for the Essex Fire Authority meeting on Wednesday June 8, where a decision on the options for change will be taken. They will be available online on Wednesday June 1. You will be able to find them here:
