LOCAL businesses in and around Alcester are being invited to take part in a consultation over the process of setting Council Tax levels for the district.

The council is organising a meeting this evening for local businesses to give their views on the budget for 2014/2015.

The meeting, which is largely informal, will be chaired by the district council leader, Councillor Chris Saint, with members of the cabinet and other councillors, and will include a presentation on the council’s spending plans for the coming year, as well as giving business people the opportunity to discuss any matters relevant to the district council’s services.

Any local businesses which have not yet received an invitation, but would like to attend the meeting, should contact Morag Haymes at Stratford District Council on 01789 260403 or write to morag.haymes@straford-dc.gov.uk.

The meeting will be taking place from 6pm, at the district council’s headquarters in Church Street, Stratford.
