Council Tax Precept Consultation 2019

The council tax bill is shared between a number of public services including local authorities, police and fire.

In response to the exceptional operational demands on the police, particularly in areas such as Thames Valley, the Government has encouraged all PCCs to raise the policing element of the council tax by £24 a year in 2019/20 or £2 a month for a Band D property. (The increase in other property bands are detailed within the survey)

The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) supports the increase in council tax by £24 for a Band D property to protect existing vital functions and ensure that Thames Valley Police has more resources to tackle crime and keep the public safe.

The PCC is holding a public consultation exercise over the Christmas period to gather local council taxpayer views on the proposed increase in the police portion of the council tax.  

To have your say please complete the survey. 

The survey is open until Wednesday 9th January at 5pm

This survey is now closed
