Share your thoughts on prioritising future County Council services - 2022/23 

A public consultation has been launched to find out where people place their priorities and thoughts on how council funds its services.

Following the Chancellor’s recent Spending Review and Autumn Budget, Suffolk County Council will have the option to raise Council Tax by 2% and the Adult Social Care Precept by 2%.

This precept is an additional charge that Government allows Local Authorities to add, on top of their core Council Tax charge, to help pay for Adult Social Care services. The income that is generated from the precept is ring fenced for Adult Social Care services only and cannot be spent on anything else.

With local authorities continuing to respond to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, global supply chain issues and climate change, Suffolk County Council is asking residents for their thoughts on helping the council prioritise its funding towards services in the coming financial year alongside meeting the continuing costs of statutory care services.
