Kent Community Warden Service Review Public Consultation
Boughton Malherbe Parish Council
We have launched a consultation on proposed changes to the Community Warden service. The consultation runs from 12 July to 3 October.
As set out in the 2023/24 budget, to help meet the financial challenge KCC is facing, the Community Warden service has been asked to reduce its annual budget by £1 million by 2024/25. Setting this year’s budget was the most challenging it has ever been, due to increasing demands on KCC services and the cost of providing them.
To achieve this level of saving we are proposing to redesign the service, ensuring that there is core Community Warden presence across the county, with teams covering two district authority areas. This would retain the community-based way the service currently works, but use data and information to identify need and where best to place wardens so they can have the most impact.
Please view the proposals in full and let us know your views by visiting kent.gov.uk/communitywardenreview and completing the online questionnaire.
