Council Tax

March 8, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

We have upheld our promise not to raise Council Tax in spite of losing considerable Government grants. There have been enormous changes within the structure of Horsham District Council, lead by your Conservative Councillors. A close watch is kept on all expenditure within the Council, resulting in a continuation of our Gold Awarded refuse scheme and many other benefits that many Councils have had to forego in this time of economic stress.

Council Tax has been frozen again this year and we will not increase it above inflation during the next 4 year council term.

As you can see below we have the lowest council tax and green waste charges in West Sussex. You will note that our combined green waste and council tax charge is 2/3 of the average of the other 6 district councils. Even when parish precepts are added our combined council tax plus parish precept is the lowest in the district.

We have not increased our council tax since 2009/10 i.e. it has been frozen for 5 years. Out of the 211 district councils in England Horsham has the 31st lowest council tax.
