Council Tax Details

As a result of effective management of financial risks over the last 7 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 REDUCE, yes you have read this correctly, we are lowering our part of the council tax bill for the 2019 – 2020 year by -1% (this is after reducing it last year by -5.5%). 

 In fact, over the last 23 years the Town Council part of the tax bill has increased by less than £1.90 per year.
