If only we knew what would happen with Council Tax over the years!
In comparison to a lot of areas we do have a low council tax charge but it still keeps going up.
With so much new housing in recent times the amounts collected have increased substancially but then so have the costs of providing services.
This is what I said back in 2009/10
I am as keen as most people to see that Council Tax increases are kept as low as possible and wonder if a Parish Council can actually make a reduction whether a borough should not be able to either!
We all realise that our belts have been tightened recently and that this will continue to be the case for the foreseeable future but rather than rushing to make cuts we ought to be reviewing basic house-keeping, value for money and high value contracts.'
I still feel that there could be savings to be made and better value for money to be had. Lets not forget it is the Conservatives who have been holding all the purse strings!
