What will Bideford rate payers be facing this year?

Bideford Town Council will be debating its precept at the end of the month.

The staffing, finance and general purposes committee recommended an increase on January 7.

That would be 9.94 per cent – or 56p a week – for a band D property.

They said it would make up for reduced council tax support grants from Torridge.
