Message from Peter McCall regarding setting the precept for the budget for 2018-2019
“I would like to know how you feel about how much you pay towards the funding of policing services, and how you would feel about increasing the policing element of your council tax next year. I am therefore encouraging you to take part in a short survey on my website, or you can complete a paper copy. I will also be seeking the views of the Chief Constable and Police and Crime Panel before making my decision.
“I am aiming to maintain policing services in Cumbria by increasing the policing element of your council tax by 1.92%. For a household living in a Band D property this amounts to an annual increase of £4.23, just over 8p per week. This modest increase will help me to support policing services and keep Cumbria a safe place.”

The survey will remain open until Friday 8th December.
