Cambridgeshire Fire Authority seeking an additional £1.44 per year for a Band D property
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Fire Authority is proposing a two per cent increase to the fire service’s proportion of council tax for 2020/21.
This equates to an extra £1.44 a year for a Band D property and £73.53 in total (compared to £72.09 this year).
An increase of two per cent is the most the Fire Authority is allowed to ask for due to capping restrictions. The Fire Authority’s government grant for 2021/22 is remaining the same as this year so the small council tax increase will help towards the Service covering inflation costs, additional expenses that Covid has brought and new, enhanced medical training for firefighters.
