Consultation Area

Council Tax Precept 2021 to 2022 

Our consultation is now closed and the results will be presented at the Fire Authority meeting on 12 February.

Find out what the current costs for providing the Service  are and where that money comes from, by reading this leaflet, click here.

This table indicates the 2020-2021 council tax bands and what a 14p per month increase on a Band D property would mean for the 2021-2022 council tax. Our long-term financial planning assumes an increase in the Council Tax of 1.99% to sustain the Service that we deliver today.

What would the additional funding from the council tax precept increase translate into? 

A Full-Time Fire Engine and crew costs £1.34m per year, 2 Fire Engine On-Call Station costs £400k per year, 10 Safety Advocates cost £330k per year and 10 Support roles cost £290k per year.

Without the additional funding, we would need to make reductions to the service that you currently receive.
