North Norfolk District Council is to give people who pay Business Rates the chance to discuss the council’s spending plans for the forthcoming financial year before they are finalised and submitted for approval.

A presentation at a breakfast meeting on Monday, January 28, will be followed by an informal discussion with senior councillors and officers.

Cllr Eric Seward, NNDC Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance, Revenue and Benefits, said: “The meeting about plans for the forthcoming budget is an opportunity to find our more on the topic and get your views heard.”

Cllr Duncan Baker, NNDC Conservative spokesman for Finance, said: “We would be delighted to hear views from our rate-payers, and I would encourage local business owners to attend so they can engage with us on our budget plans.”

Cllr John Rest, Leader of the Independent Group at NNDC, said: “This is an opportunity for businesses to put forward their ideas for the forthcoming budget. The success of last year's event proved very valuable. We want to continue to ensure that we work with local businesses, and identify your needs for the future.”

The meeting is open to any organisation, group or individual. Please email to confirm attendance by January 25 or to request any further information.

The meeting, which will be held at NNDC's Cromer offices, will start at 8.30am.
