Have Your Say – Paying for your Police and Fire and Rescue Service

Public Budget Consultation 2022-23

Have Your Say – Paying for your Police and Fire and Rescue Service

Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold has launched a budget consultation to ask for views on the level of council tax precept for policing and fire and rescue services next year.

The PFCC sets the budget for both Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service and Northamptonshire Police. The budgets are made up from money raised from central government grants and the policing and fire precepts, which are part of the council tax.

We want to know your views and have launched this budget survey to ask you whether you would pay more for the services provided by policing and the fire service. This is your chance to share your views. Please do take the time to complete the survey before the deadline of January 16, 2022.

The Area Operations Manager at the Canal and River Trust have advised that the works to repair a section of the canal on the Crick bridle road are going well and are on schedule. They are hoping to re-water the canal in the second week of December.
Work on the towpath will take place after the work is completed and they are looking for some volunteers to help restore the towpath by topping with a more resistant material to improve the overall condition.
If you are able to spare a few hours to help please do let us know. Please contact Cllr Julie Cottle, julie.c@yelvertoft-pc.gov.uk.
