Hertfordshire Annual Budget Survey

 

A councillor informed the Parish Council that the result of the Hertfordshire County Council Annual Budget Survey showed that the results of those that participated in it were that although 32 percent were not in favour of an increase in the Council Tax, 11.8 percent were undecided and 56.2 percent were in favour of an increase in spending.

The Parish Council felt that although those that were in favour of an increase were in the majority any increase affected those on lower pay to a far greater extent than the more affluent and asked them to reconsider their priorities cautiously.
