Do you support a small council tax increase to support the Heritage Triangle Project?
Diss Town council has agreed to contribute £200,000 towards the Heritage Triangle Project by taking out a capital loan. The Council would be responsible for replacing the Corn Hall roof within the next few years as well as carrying out other urgent repairs, estimated to cost between £400,000 and £500,000. Investing £200,000 will leverage a further £2.8m investment in Diss. Loan repayments are likely to result in an increase in council tax by up to £9.38 per year.
What do you think? Do you support this increase? Please complete our short online survey here or contact us.
