It’s that time of year when the Councils must consider what level of taxation they need to make for the next financial year. This decision has to be made by all levels of government – be it Westminster, Borough, Town or Parish.
Northamptonshire County Council’s proposals for the budget and council plan have been published and, following consultation, a report will be presented to Cabinet in February. Approval will then be given at a meeting of the Full Council on Thursday, 23 February.
The NCC invite you to
“Have your say, by looking through the full proposals and draft council plan on their website.” The Council continues, “We encourage you to take part in the consultation, which is open until 24 January, to have your say on our proposals.” To see the proposals, click on this link:
