As a result of effective management of financial risks over the last 8 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 to freeze our part of the council tax bill for the 2023 – 2024 year (this is after freezing it the last two years and reducing it by -5.5% and -1% in the previous two years before that).
In fact, over the last 23 years the Town Council part of the tax bill has increased by less than £1.90 per year.
