Hounslow Propose Zero Increase in Council Tax
Cllr Peter Thompson recommends no rise in council's share of bill
At the Borough Council on Tuesday 6th March, Cllr Peter Thompson will be proposing that Hounslow Council’s part of the Council Tax increases by zero percent.
Cllr Thompson stated, "I am pleased to be recommending absolutely no increase in Hounslow’s share of the Council Tax."
“We stated from the outset that we want to be a lower tax authority, as we believe that Government, as a whole should tax less and deliver more for people’s money, a sentiment shared by 80% of our residents. We are clear that we want to see a fair level of council tax with money being spent wisely on front-line essential services and not wasted on expensive overheads, inefficiency and duplication.”
“Improving our service remains our priority and we will keep working hard on behalf of local people to transform Hounslow Council into an authority that delivers on local priorities and does so efficiently and effectively. I hope that residents will recognise that we are moving in the right direction and delivering better value for money.”
