Council Tax Precept Consultation 2018

In January 2017 the government announced in its funding settlement that it would enable Police and Crime Commissioners to increase the policing element of the Council Tax in order to fund local policing.

Before the Police and Crime Commissioner made a decision on the level of council tax, he sought the views of residents in the Thames Valley.  

5,600 people completed a survey about increasing the council tax and nearly 85% agreed to an increase to fund policing.

Anthony Stansfeld Police and Crime Commissioner said "Like many who took part in the survey I strongly believe that the additional funding should come directly from government and I will continue to highlight this to the Home Secretary and the Policing Minister. However, to ensure that we protect front line policing I have made the decision to increase the police element of the council tax by £12 for the equivalent of a Band D property*.
