NORTH Wales Police and Crime Panel held a meeting in January to consider the Police and Crime Commissioner’s proposals for the precept of Policing expenditure for the coming years.

The meeting focussed on the expenditure in North Wales for 2014/15, together with the impact on council tax from April 2014, noting that the proposals took account of reduced central government grants, top slicing of other grants and the performance of North Wales Police generally.

The proposed increase of 3.19% in the policing precept is equivalent to an extra £4.50 for the year or 9 pence per week for a Band D property.

The Panel unanimously approved the proposed increase in the precept.

Panel Chairman, Councillor Glenys Diskin, said "We recognise the challenges of balancing the need for policing services for the communities in North Wales and the constraints being applied to public sector funding.

The Panel thinks that the proposals are reasonable in the current circumstances and we will continue to monitor and hold the Police and Crime Commissioner to account for performance against the budget in 2014/15."
