Selsey Town Council Prioritises maintaining its current services in the present economic climate

In response to the steep increase in inflation over the last couple of years, Selsey Town Council has ensured the continued provision of essential services to its residents, while understanding the importance of maintaining a high quality of life for its residents. The Town Council has therefore made a modest increase in its proportion of the council tax which works out at 40p per week for a property at Band D.

The Town Council is committed to sustaining vital community services, which includes the continuation of part funding the fortnightly mobile tip, Community Warden, Town CCTV, and maintenance of its outdoor spaces and playgrounds and re-opening the public toilets at Warner's Yard, even in the face of economic challenges. This adjustment will contribute directly to safeguarding and enhancing the well-being of the community, ensuring that Selsey remains a vibrant and thriving place to live.

"While we recognise the impact of inflation on household budgets, this modest increase in the council tax will protect and enhance the services that our residents rely on," said Andrew Brown, Chair of Council, "Our primary focus remains on supporting the community through these challenging times, and this adjustment is crucial to maintaining the current services that that our community deserves."

The additional revenue generated will be channelled directly into key areas of community development, including the improvement of public spaces and the enhancement of recreational facilities. This investment aims to foster a stronger sense of community and well-being for all residents of Selsey.

The Town Council is committed to transparency and accountability. Please do attend the Town Council's Public Meetings for the schedule visit to keep up to date on the Town Council's work for Selsey.

Selsey Town Council appreciates the understanding and cooperation of its residents as it strives to navigate the economic challenges of the present while safeguarding the community's future. Together, with your support, the Town Council remains dedicated to preserving Selsey's reputation as a great place to live and work.
