KCC: 2021 Financial Consultation

Kent County Council are holding a consultation on their budget for 2021. They are asking residents to give them feedback on which services should be protected from budget cuts and whether there is support for an increase in council tax to help balance the budget.

A 2% increase would raise a further £14.4million to be spent on adult social care services and increase the KCC element for a band C property by a further £24 (or 46 pence per week).

The consultation runs from 14 October to 24 November 2020 and the document and questionnaire can be found here: www.kent.gov.uk/budget

Mobile Library

Kent’s mobile library service will restart in Bridge from 17th September 2020.

The service will look and feel a little different. It will be delivered on a ‘Select & Collect’ basis, similar to the service currently operating in the open library buildings, with no public entry to the mobile vehicle. Customers will be able to return books and receive books they have pre-selected, alongside being able to talk to the mobile driver. Mobile library routes have been amended to accommodate COVID19 specific staff welfare issues and will run on a 4-weekly cycle.

Our service will be on Thursdays, 15:15-16:00 on rota “Monthly Blue 2”
