Lib Dems set to freeze Council Tax for 5th year.

November 7, 2014 12:07 PM

Lib Dem Council leaders in Hinckley and Bosworth are set to freeze the
Borough Council's part of the Council Tax for the 5th consecutive year,
the Council Leader announced on Tuesday night.

Cllr Stuart Bray (Lib Dem, Hinckley Castle Ward) told the full Council
that his administration continued to ensure the Council was on a firm
financial footing for next year and the next three years. Stuart Bray

Cllr Bray said "This will mean that throughout the full term of this
Lib Dem administration we have not increased Council Tax by a single
penny, yet we continue to maintain good local services. On top of this
we have a regeneration record that is the envy of council's across the
country with work well underway on bringing a new cinema, leisure centre
and shops and restaurants to the town.

"Residents only need to compare this to the record of the Conservative
County Council who are axing staff and slashing services such as the
funding for the well-used green waste service and local libraries."

Under the Liberal Democrat administration Hinckley and Bosworth has the
ninth lowest Council Tax in the whole United Kingdom.
