Leader of the Council, Cllr David Wright said, “The Borough Council has worked hard to limit the impact on households where possible and are mindful of the current cost-of-living pressures and the potential impact an increased rate could have on council taxpayers. However, we must also consider the need to provide ongoing funding for our services, so we can continue to deliver the services our residents need and expect."
