Twerton residents face council tax rise

A decision of the ruling conservative administration on Bath & North East Somerset Council means that residents will face a 3.25% increase in council tax this year.

We are concerned that already hard up residents will be expected to pay more for ever reducing services.

In Twerton we have had the recent problems of the council not collecting our recycling waste and still have problems with the litter left behind on our streets and yet we are expected to still pay more.

We will be keeping an eye on what services they still plan to cut further due to government reductions in funding and will press for our residents to receive the services that they need.

Councillor Tim Ball has published the political response to the budget proposals here.
