Spending proposals that protect frontline services and continue to drive forward the district’s regeneration have been unveiled by Wyre Forest District Council leaders today.
The proposed budget for 2018-19 builds on important decisions made last year around our key priorities including making efficiency savings, generating additional income to protect services communities value and championing regeneration to create jobs and new homes.
Following a freeze on the district council’s part of bills for the last two years proposals for 2018-19 include a modest increase of 1.94% for Wyre Forest District Council services. This would mean an average Band D property would see an annual increase of £3.98 – or less than 8 pence per week - on the district council part of the Council Tax bill from £205.36 in 2017 to £209.34 in 2018.
Members of the public will have a chance to comment on the proposals in a budget consultation from Wednesday 20 December 2017 and run until Thursday 18 January 2018.
