As a result of effective management of financial risks over the last 6 years (budgeting for costs that will occur and then ensuring funds are used, easing the burden for rate payers on expenditure such as building/facilities maintenance and the replacement of assets) the Town Council has managed toNOT INCREASEits part of the council tax bill for the 2017 – 2018 year, and it remains at the same amount it was REDUCEDto last year. In fact, over the last 22 years the Town Council part of the tax bill has only increased by the equivalent of just £1.91 per year.
