Support for Councils and Clerks

Police and Crime Commissioner Budget consultation now live

Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Giles Orpen-Smellie has launched his Police Budget Consultation.

Residents of Norfolk are being asked if the PCC should increase the police precept of council tax for the coming year.

The consultation is a legal requirement that the PCC must carry out each year.

Having discussed funding with the Chief Constable Paul Sanford, Giles is seeking the community’s support for a precept rise of 5.2%.

Based on a 5.2% increase, a Band D property would pay an extra £14.94 or 29 pence per week and a Band B property would pay £11.62 a year or 22 pence a week.

The consultation will run until 5pm, Monday 16 January.
