Police part of council tax to rise by 1.9 per cent

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Swindon and Wiltshire, Angus Macpherson, has set a 1.9 per cent rise for the policing part of the Council Tax - or precept - for 2017-2018.

After public consultation the rise was supported today (February 2) by the Police and Crime Panel.

The police precept will be £170.27 for an average Band D home - up from this year's £167.10.  That rise of £3.17 equates to 6p a week.

It means that Mr Macpherson will get an extra £790,000 of local income.  But he will have £814,000 cut from his government funding - leaving him with an almost standstill budget for the year ahead.
