Black and White

The Council’s Financial Strategy.

Section 11 is “Specific Government Grants”. Section 12 is “Use of Reward Grant”

But Section 13 is “Council Tax” which begins – “Council Tax is the major source of revenue for the Borough and as such it is important that it is used to generate the maximum amount of income possible.”


This, if proof were needed, in black and white, is the Council’s ambition – to go on increasing Council tax as much as possible. Indeed, if this were not sufficient proof, the Liberal Democrat’s Financial Strategy then goes on to talk about the level of future increases when considering capping.

It says “It is, therefore, the Borough’s strategy to calculate future Council Tax increases to be marginally below the anticipated capping limit ..”


So when they say they want to keep Council Tax down, do you believe the rhetoric or the reality?
