Tower Hamlets Council Tax to be frozen again says Mayor
Council Tax in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets is to be frozen for the year 2012-13.
This will be the third year in a row that council tax has been frozen.
In proposals to be discussed over the coming months and verified at the February/March 2012 council meeting, council officers have been asked to prepare financial plans that do not include a council tax rise. This is in line with recent local practice and government policy.
Mayor Lutfur Rahman said, “”In these austere times our residents are finding it more and more difficult to pay basic household bills. We as a council must do every thing to help. Freezing Council Tax this year is one way we can leave more money in our residents’ pockets.
I have asked officers to prepare a budget to deliver improved services without increasing the financial burden on local people. My full budget proposals will be set out in a Cabinet paper for January 2012.”
