IN ORDER to gauge the opinions of Sussex residents on a possible further precept increase, Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne has decided to run a further consultation.

Simon Kirby said: “I welcome this consultation as I believe that it is important for the public to have their say on important matters such as how much they pay on their Council Tax. I am always conscious that for many people, Council Tax will be the highest bill they get (after mortgage/rent) and am therefore keen to see Council Tax frozen for residents.

“I would like to encourage residents to take the time to complete this consultation, and to share their opinions on this important matter.”
