Rural residents and councillors have less than a week to sign a petition demanding fairer funding from the government for rural communities.

The government's funding formula for local authorities means urban councils currently receive around 50% more money per person than rural councils.

A Rural Fair Share campaign to encourage the Government to address the ongoing disparity in funding between rural and urban areas is being led by Graham Stuart MP. The petition calls on the government to reduce the funding gap to 40% by 2020. More »

The petition has been extended to run until FRIDAY 11th OCTOBER, with many rural local authorities keen for as many people as possible to add their signature to the campaign.

A recent report by the Rural Services Network found that people pay higher council tax in rural areas and yet receive substantially less support for public services. With the formula for government settlements set to be frozen until 2020, the network believes the funding gap must be more balanced, before communities face another six years of unfairness.

Copies of the petition can be downloaded from the Rural Services Network website, which also gives the address as to where they need to be returned. To access the petition, Click Here » Less
