    It my not be the topic that people wish to hear about but if the realities of Brexit weren't apparent to the Brexiteers before embarking upon their project to downsize the UK economy, they must be thanking the pandemic for hiding the economic impact and what it means to business of becoming a 'third country'.

    Article: Feb 22, 2021

    East Suffolk Lib Dems have been appraised of the growing disquiet locally about the large crude oil deposit on North Lowestoft/Gunton Beach featured recently in the Lowestoft Journal and the apparent lack of action by the responsible authorities.

    It is reported that the recent storm has apparently exacerbated the problem and added to concerns that more oil buried may be exposed as a result of coastal erosion and increase the risk of the contamination of other local beaches and be a potential threats to people, animals and wildlife in the area.

  • Suffolk County Council (SCCNAME PLATE)
    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.
