Police and Crime Commissioner Angus Macpherson has set the police and crime element of council tax for 2016-17 at an increase of of 1.9 per cent or £3.12 a year (or 6p a week) for the average band D property.
The public consultation which ran from Tuesday 5 January 2016 to 10am on Tuesday 2 February 2016.
Police and Crime Commissioner Angus Macpherson said: “The £3.12 a year increase would provide an additional £769,000 of local income for 2016-17. This would help to cover rising costs, including £2m worth of National Insurance contributions from which we have previously been exempt.The money raised from the police part of the council tax will also be used to protect community policing which I believe is greatly valued by people in Wiltshire and Swindon.
Mr Macpherson formally presented his proposal to the Police and Crime Panel at County Hall, Trowbridge on Thursday 4 February.
A presentation about the proposal was given by the Commissioner and members of his team at Wiltshire Council Area Boards and Swindon Borough Council Localities from Tuesday 6 January to Wednesday 4 February 2015.
