Council Tax

Budget Consultation 2024-2025

The Council provides a range of services - housing, waste and recycling, planning, environmental health, community and leisure services, and much more. Each year elected members must decide how much DDC can afford to spend on the services we provide to our residents.

We are now asking district residents to take part in shaping the future of our services by completing a short survey. You can find more information about the services we provide and complete the survey online.

The survey closes on 8 January 2024.
