New council tax bill for Uckfield residents is becoming clear

Wealden Council is being recommended to increase its element of the council tax by 2.6% (£5) for an average Band D household in the year 2020-21.

The full council meets on Wednesday and fix the increase then.

The total council tax bill faced by district residents will also include precepts from East Sussex County Council, Sussex Police, East Sussex Fire & Rescue, and town council or parish council.
