Budget Consultation Update

Budget Consultation Update – Council Tax Freeze for 2022/23

Throughout December and January, Barry Town Council consulted with residents of Barry on the proposed Draft Budget.

We told you that we proposed to increase the Council Tax precept by 1.9% and asked if you would be prepared to support this increase?

75% of respondents told us that they would NOT support this increase.

As a result, Barry Town Council met yesterday evening (Monday 7th February 2022), to discuss the Draft Budget for 2022/23 and agreed a Council Tax FREEZE for 2022/23. Councillors were keen to support residents in difficult times and set a precept resulting in NO increase to a Band D rate payer.
