Council tax payment pressure set to increase

Under terms laid out in last week’s Budget announcement, the average amount being paid in council taxes will rise by a full 4.3 per cent over the course of the coming 12 months, the Communities and Local Government department has explained.

And for those living in what are termed band D residences, this increases the annual council tax bill by £58 pounds to £1,321, which could prove problematic for some of those looking to avoid bankruptcy in England.

Reviewing local government operations recently, Sir Michael Lyons remarked: “Council tax is not ‘broken’ but is seen as unfair and has been put under too much pressure.”

Elsewhere in the same report, Sir Michael called for a greater degree of cooperation between all parts of government to strengthen the effectiveness of the relationship between local and national authorities.
