Residents are being asked to have their say on planned changes to temporary protection of homes and pets for people admitted to hospital or care homes.

Nottinghamshire County Council currently spends around £50,000 a year on the service, which can include paying for a person’s pets to stay in a kennel or cattery for up to six weeks with a further free extension if required.

The new policy includes reducing the free offer to 14 days with one extension of a further seven days, which would save the council £27,000 a year.

The consultation on the plans is open until 31st August and people can leave feedback by visiting council/democracy/have-your-say/consultations
