Have Your Say
The Town Council is about to start considering setting the budget and precept (the money you pay to the Town Council for Ryde as part of your Council Tax bill) for Ryde in 2016-17. This year the Town Council has delivered a wider range of local services including allotments, a skatepark, decorative lighting, beach safety, beach cleaning and planting schemes as well as funding a dedicated Environment Officer for the town and Councillors will be considering where the budget should be allocated in the future. The Town Council will also be giving consideration to the future of some Isle of Wight Council services – with the provision of public toilets likely to be the most at risk. Have your say by contacting your local town councillor, by emailing the Town Council or by writing to us with your views using the contact details above. There will also be a public consultation meeting in January for residents to come and have their say – please check the town council’s website for more details about this.
