5% Council Tax Increase Proposed To Tackle Dorset’s £42m Budget Gap

Dorset Council has published its initial budget proposals for the next financial year.

The plans will be debated by several committees starting on 11th December. If approved, our council tax will increase by just under 5% next year and there’ll be no pay rises for council staff.

Adjustments will also be made to council services to fill a £42million shortfall.
