Lots of news on the blog sites about how the District Council's Budget will affect us all. I think it may help to put the matter into perspective:-
If you live in an 'average' band 'D' house it will cost an extra £7..80p a year. Any other rise comes from KCC, the Fire Authority, The Police Authority,and ,if applicable, your very own parish council or Charter trustees.
When you look at it like that I would contend that its a good budget.
