Herts police and crime commissioner David Lloyd confirms 6.7% council tax rise to pay for policing

The price paid by residents for policing in Hertfordshire is set to rise by 6.7% after more than half of survey respondents said they were willing to pay more.

The county’s police and crime commissioner (PCC) David Lloyd has confirmed a £15 increase in April for band D householders, taking his share of their overall council tax bills from £223 to £238 – or £4.58 a week. The rise will generate an extra £7m.

Over the past five years, he has imposed a 45% hike in the policing precept. In 2018-19, the band D figure was £164.09.
