Council debated the budget, where it was confirmed that the Council had not cut any services in the past seven years and that rather than a laudable aim, improving welfare within the District was a commitment. The support that the Council gave to the business community through the Economic Development Team was also highlighted and the increases to some Business Rates that had remained static for some time had been subject to a review and were justified.
Proposed by Councillor Millard and seconded by Councillor Louisson, it was
RESOLVED that the Council
a) Approves the proposed Revenue and Capital Budgets for 2020/21 including a Council Tax rate of £133.73 at Band D, representing a 2% increase on the current charge;
b) Agrees the Capital Strategy, Treasury Management Strategy and Prudential Indicators; and
c) Agrees the increase to fees and charges for 2020/21.
(The detailed Council Tax calculation is set out in the Annex to these minutes)
