Sec­re­tary of state will rein in ex­cess

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

We are writ­ing in re­sponse to the let­ter ‘The high costs of Com­mu­nity Coun­cils’.

It stated cor­rectly that com­mu­nity coun­cils in the ur­ban ar­eas of Ash­ford, Willes­bor­ough and Ken­ning­ton would be free to set their own bud­gets.

How­ever, it was not men­tioned that the sec­re­tary of state for com­mu­ni­ties and lo­cal gov­ern­ment has pow­ers to trig­ger lo­cal votes if ex­ces­sive pre­cept de­mands are made.
