Council Tax

A news story in the Local Government Chronicle reports that a number of Councils across the country are planning to reject the Government's offer to subsidise council tax freezes.

The Green Party in Brighton and Hove have already announced that they plan to refuse the Government's offer of an additional £3 million in annual funding and will raise Council Tax by 3.5%. If they do this every year until their next elections in 2014 Council Tax bills will rise by 14%.

Your Conservative controlled Councils in both Adur and Worthing will be freezing Council Tax in 2012 in recognition of the difficult economic circumstances that many in our community are facing.
