Approval for £15m Lincolnshire emergency services plan
Plans for a £15m plan to increase collaboration between Lincolnshire's emergency services have been approved.
The proposals are for a joint control centre and combined fire, police and ambulance stations - dubbed a "blue-light campus".
The plans were approved by Lincolnshire County Council's executive committee.
The partners have secured a grant of £7.5m from the Home Office's Police Innovation Fund, with match-funding being provided by the three services.
The scheme now needs final approval from the county's Police and Crime Commissioner.
Lincolnshire Police Chief Constable Neil Rhodes said: "We've been working together to identify opportunities which would enable our services to work more closely together to deliver a better service to the local community, and reviewing our buildings and estates made perfect sense."
If approved, the changes would be introduced by December 2018.
