Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete my recent survey, either online or at one of the many engagement events my team carried out across Gwent.
We will analyse the data and the comments given, and this information will be taken into consideration to help me set the council tax precept for 2022/23.
This is never an easy decision to take. As well as your feedback, I must consider the amount of money that the Chief Constable says Gwent Police needs to operate an efficient and effective service, and the annual financial settlement from the UK Government. Naturally, I will also take account of people’s ability to pay during these difficult economic times.
My proposal will be presented to the Gwent Police and Crime Panel on Friday 28 January for their consideration. The meeting will be broadcast live and available to view on Caerphilly County Borough Council’s YouTube channel.
