Christchurch Borough Council propose council tax increase0
Christchurch Borough Council’s Annual Budget Report presented to Christchurch Council’s Resources Committee on 6 February 2013 recommended that the Council considers a small increase in its element of the Council Tax for 2013/14.
The proposal would amount to a six pence per week increase for a band D property and would be the first in three years.
Over the past two years the Government’s formula grant to the Council has been cut by 28 per cent. A further cut in the like-for-like grant of 10 per cent will be seen by the Council in the coming financial year with further cuts planned for the foreseeable future.
f the recommendation is agreed, the decision will go to Full Council for ratification on 26 February.
