Suffolk County Cllr Tony GOLDSON (also an East Suffolk Councillor) reports on his FB page that at the meeting of East Suffolk Council on Wed 24th Feb 2021, they voted to NOT raise the District portion of the Council Tax. This decision does not appear to have been supported by the Liberals or Greens. Some members of the public may find it hard to understand the reasons for that. Cllr GOLDSON commented “ The Green Party voted against this even though they did not submit any amendments to the proposed council budget or any alternative budget”. The full meeting can be viewed on YouTube.

Wrentham Parish Council expressed concerns to Suffolk County Councillor Tony Goldson about No. 26 High St, Wrentham. There is scaffold erected because renovations are being carried out, and the structure appeared to encroach on to the Highway. The Parish Council had previously tried to contact the owner sometime ago with no successful outcome, and so the matter was elevated to the County Council. Suffolk County Councillor Tony Goldson organised boundary checks with Suffolk Highways and liaised with the owners of the premises. The scaffolding has now been re-sited nearer to the building leaving the highway clear. Chairman of the Parish Council Ian Watson said that he was very pleased with the action taken by County Councillor Goldson.
