David Hodge, Leader of Surrey County Council, announces proposal to seek a council tax rise of 15%

David Hodge, Leader of Surrey County Council, has announced a proposal to seek a council tax rise of 15%.

He said: “We have to set a budget that will protect vital services for Surrey residents.

“Government has cut our annual grant by £170m since 2010 – leaving a huge gap in our budget.

“Demand for adults social care, learning disabilities and children’s services is increasing every year.

“So I regret, despite us finding £450m worth of savings from our annual budget, we have no choice but to propose this increase in council tax.”
