Council Tax Precept Survey
Dr Alan Billings, South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner is seeking the views of residents in South Yorkshire on setting the council tax precept for policing for the financial year starting in April 2019.
Last week the Government announced the Provisional Police Grant, providing details of the force-level allocations of central Government funding for 2019/20.
The police budget is made up of the allocation plus money raised from the council tax precept and other government grants. The Government set a limit on the amount of money police and crime commissioners can raise from the precept. This year that amount has been set at a maximum of £16 Band A & B properties, (which make up the majority of households in South Yorkshire) or £24 (£2 per month) for a Band D property.
The survey is available until 18 January 2019.
