A consultation has been launched to gather views from residents and businesses about how Herefordshire Council budgets should be prioritised in 2024/25. Residents are being asked for feedback on some key areas that could contribute towards balancing the budget including where charges could be raised such as increased parking charges. The consultation also outlines a number of proposed increases in council tax alongside how much additional money each would raise.
