Budget Consultation - Have Your Say

You should have received a letter that includes a breakdown of the proposed budget for 2019/20. This includes a proposal to make a small increase to the council tax precept, equivalent to around 16 pence per week for the majority of households in the parish. 

We want to hear your views. 

Our proposals will ensure that all our existing services can be safeguarded, but in addition will allow for extra spending on maintaining and improving our estates and open spaces and will also provide additional support for the provision of services to individuals, families and young people, in line with what you told us you wanted to see. We are not suggesting that we will be able to transform our area with relatively small amounts of additional money, but we do believe it will make a positive difference.

All responses will be confidential, but you can contact us if you would like to discuss further or attend one of our 'drop in' events, details of which are in the letter sent. 

This online questionnaire should take no more than a couple of minutes to complete - only 4 questions and the option of any other comments. 

Thank you.
