    Article: Feb 12, 2021

    Suffolk County Council agree on 4% council tax rate for 2021/22

    Another piece of the annual Budget jigsaw was put into place yesterday as the Conservative led County authority set the budget for the coming year and agreed a rise of 4%. This will be added to respective precepts from Districts, Borough and local town and parish Councils and the Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner to form the final bill to taxpayers. The Council had the option to go for a maximum of 5% which would have provided more funds for the crisis ravaged social care sector. The decision will result in a budget of £597.9m an increase of £41m and an extra £53.55 for a Band D property on this year's bill.
