Avon & Somerset Police & Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “I have listened carefully to what the Police & Crime Panel has said today and I agree with them that freezing the council tax is not a long term solution. During the election campaign the view of residents was clear to me, many households are experiencing hard times and an increase in the policing part of the council tax would be felt.
“I took account of these views in my budget planning and bearing in mind that we are treated unfairly by government funding I felt that I could not turn away a government grant equivalent to a 1% council tax increase. I will freeze the policing part of the council tax this year but I plan to have a full consultation with residents next year.”
