Council Tax Precept 2022 to 2023 - now closed
The consultation closed at 12 noon on Friday 21 January 2022. The results will be presented at the Fire Authority meeting on 11 February 2022.
Would you pay between 10p (Band A property) to a maximum of 29p (Band H property) extra per month, to support the delivery of fire and rescue services in the Humberside area?
Our long-term financial planning assumes an increase in the Council Tax of 1.99% to sustain the service that we deliver today.
The table below provides the 2021-2022 council tax bands and what a 1.99% increase would mean for each Council Tax band in 2022-2023.
As with most public sector organisations, Humberside Fire Authority continues to face significant financial challenges over the next few years and it must continue to work hard to ensure that it can continue to deliver a high level of service.
Without the additional funding, we would need to make reductions to the services that you currently receive.
What out what we spend and how much the Service costs here.
Here are some examples of costs to maintain the services we currently provide:
- A Full-Time fire engine and crew costs £1.36m per year
- A two fire engine On-Call Fire Station costs £400k per year
- 10 Safety Advocates cost £340k per year
- 10 Fire Staff (non operational) roles cost £300k per year
