The Town Council is currently in the process of setting its Revenue and Capital Budgets for the 2017/18 financial year, and we wish to seek the views of the local community on our draft budget proposals and the proposed 1.99% increase in the Town Council Tax. We would also welcome your views on the Council services that are most and least important to you, and whether there are new services or initiatives that you would like to see the Council make investment in. Your views are very important to us and will be used to help to inform the Council’s service and financial planning over the coming years. We have developed a survey to formally record your views and we would encourage
Town Council 2017/18 Budget Consultation local residents to complete this questionnaire. The results of the survey, including any specific comments or concerns, will be reported to the Council before it meets to set the final budget in January.
