We Asked

Your views on our proposal to iincrease Council Tax.

You Said

We received 157 responses to this consultation, the majority of which (96)  disagreed with our proposal. Many of those against an increase said that earnings were not keeping up with increases in council tax and that they felt that council tax was already expensive. Of those that were supportive (51) the main reason people gave for their agreement was the need to protect services, especially frontline services and adult social care.

We Did

At a meeting on 11 February 2019, members of Norfolk County Council voted to agree a £409 million revenue budget for 2019-20.

The decision means the county council’s share of band D Council Tax bills will rise by 2.99 per cent to £1,362.24 from April 2019.

Examples of increased investment include £6m to address growing demand on adult social services, and £14.5m to tackle pressures on the looked-after children service
