PFCC helps secure £550,000 to help make Chelmsford safer
Chelmsford is set to be made safer for everyone, thanks to £550,000 of funding from the Home Office’s Safer Streets Fund.
The money will be invested in several projects in the city, particularly in the Bunny Walks area which was identified as a place where people, particularly women and girls felt unsafe.
The bid was submitted by Roger Hirst, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex in partnership with Chelmsford City Council, Essex County Council and Essex Police.
It was also supported by Chelmsford MP Vicky Ford. Roger Hirst said: “Only by working in partnership can we make our city centres and communities places that everyone, especially women and girls, can feel safe in day and night.
“This money we have successfully secured from the government will help us do just that.”
