I’m asking all residents to support a £15 per household, a year, rise on a band D property in the policing part of council tax for 2021/22. This equates to an extra £1.25 a month and means that we will be able to support the recruitment of 46 additional officers for Wiltshire in 2021/22 and maintain essential services.
I know that in normal times an increase in contributions will be felt by our communities but after this year, I realise this increase will be felt more keenly than ever before. The decision to ask for your support for a £15 per year increase has been a difficult one – and one that I would not make if there was an alternative.
Whatever your opinion, I would encourage you to fill out the survey. It is only by making sure your voice is heard that I can truly understand the views of local people – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/PNHBKSG
