Taking care of your money

Suffolk Conservatives are proud of their financial record, freezing Council Tax for a full seven years in a row. As we prepare to enter the new financial year and look ahead to future challenges, we remain committed to being a low-tax county; making services more efficient and effective rather than just cutting budgets.

Chris Chambers said, “In future years, we will increase Council Tax by only the barest amount to ensure that Council Taxpayers are only asked to pay more for our services.
“In St Margarets & Westgate this means we can focus more money on critical services such as social care, education, local libraries”.

Last year we increased the budget for both adult social care services and children’s services and we have done so again, ensuring we are investing in our critically important, front-line services. Although there are difficult times ahead, our prudent financial management will see us through and allow us to continue providing these services into the future.
