UNFAIR COUNCIL TAX RISES PROPOSED


UNFAIR COUNCIL TAX RISES PROPOSED
The Conservatives are considering options to raise council tax across Northamptonshire but what is certain is that residents in Daventry and South Northamptonshire will be asked to pay over and above and more than their fair share. Above inflation increases in council tax could be nearly 7% in Daventry and almost 5% in South Northamptonshire whilst those in Northampton will face increased bills as well. These extra bills will hit residents next May.

Liberal Democrat councillor Mark Allen says: “The government promised abolishing failed Northamptonshire County Council and other local councils would bring benefits to residents. Now it’s clear that council tax will go up and services will get worse.
The new West Northamptonshire Council will take on the debts run up by Northampton Borough and Northamptonshire County Council."
“Liberal Democrats are pushing the Conservatives to adopt a solution that ensures no resident suffers a council tax increase above the 3.99% limit set by government but so far they have refused to agree.
"Struggling families should not be paying more for exactly the same services.”
