West Norfolk councillor demands government help for ‘retirement’ county
A West Norfolk councillor has called for greater government support to meet the costs of providing care for the county’s elderly population.
Norfolk County Council is due to set its budget for the forthcoming financial year on Monday, including plans for a near five per cent rise in council tax.
But, although most of that would go towards adult social care if implemented, critics say even greater funding is needed. And Clenchwarton and Lynn South representative Alexandra Kemp has written to the communities secretary, Sajid Javid, to demand extra support.
