County Councillor David Pugh’s Report
County Councillor Pugh reported the following;
Following a review by PCC, the county’s leisure and tourism services would now be kept ‘in-house’ as potential savings from privatisation could not be evidenced.
PCC would be working on developing policy and the delivery mechanism for distributing funding received from the Second Homes Council Tax between now and the autumn. The amounts received from this new tax would not be known until September 2017. It was expected that voluntary and community groups, as well as some Community Councils, would be recipients of some of the revenue raised.
