Hounslow On Track For Zero Increase In Council Tax
Despite ‘worst settlement for a decade’ from Government
Hounslow residents could be looking at a second year of zero per cent increase in their council tax, if the council meeting on 4th March votes in favour of budget proposals.
“Many people have asked me how we have managed this with miserly settlements from central government and cost pressures. Thanks to careful financial planning, we have been able to manage without reducing front line services and we will be increasing our spending on services that residents have told us matter to them.
“We have had to take some tough decisions about how spend residents’ money. In addition we have made savings by identifying where we can do things differently, or more efficiently.
