Tax review roadshow comes to Alderney
A programme of community engagement on the challenges faced in funding public services comes to Alderney on Wednesday March 16th (Island Hall, 7pm).
A series of Tax Review events open to the public across the Bailiwick has been announced by the States of Guernsey to explain the major funding challenges Guernsey and Alderney will face in the future as the shape and make-up of the population changes.
Deputy Mark Helyar, Treasury lead for the Policy & Resources Committee and Chair of the Tax Review Steering Group, and Deputy Peter Roffey, President of the Committee for Employment & Social Security, will chair the Alderney event. In addition, all households will receive a leaflet setting out the background to these challenges and the options for solving them.
A new website hosts a raft of information, FAQs, video and other content on the Tax Review. More information will be added in due course on other programmes which also look at the long-term sustainability of the public service, including the Government Work Plan, Public Service Reform, and transformation programmes at Education and Health & Social Care.
A live Tax Review media presentation and Q&A is being held at 5pm on Thursday 10th February and will be livestreamed on the States of Guernsey’s Facebook page and broadcast on BBC Guernsey.
