Council tax going up and up!

Not, however, what you would have heard if you were listening to Waverley’s Budget Meeting last week – as the Tory administration told the world and his wife and children that the borough was safe in its hands. It claimed it had not increased council tax very often during its stewardship.

White man once again speaks with forked tongue?

Roll up – Roll up for ‘Your Waverley’s Annual Budget Show.

Since 1997 council tax in England as a whole has increased by 57% in real terms. You will see from the map below Waverley Borough Council’s council tax has increased by 88.90%. This information has been collected by the Taxpayers’ Alliance and not by us.

  1. I don’t have an issue with paying my fair share of Council Tax – I would just like to see the residents of some of the smaller villages get some benefit. How can it be right that the Council Tax in Alfold is roughly the same as Farnham? when we have No street Lighting (not that I want it) although some Low-Level Lighting around the Crossways wouldn’t go amiss. No Mains Gas. I don’t think I have ever seen a Police man in the village and only seen their cars when there has been an accident.

    As you know I am a Wandsworth-Wanderer – Where we had incredibly Low council Tax, but I regularly saw Police walking the streets and we had all the facilities. I don’t expect SCC to be the same and I understand the limitations of living in a rural area – But I would like to see a bit more value for Money here.

  2. We would all like to see more value for money – but as are now all too well aware we will pay more and get less. We will be posting shortly on the increases in fees and charges that WBC intend inflicting upon us too.
    So all that back slapping and congratulations was as hollow as their words. That is why they went on the attack to the Opposition all seven of them against 50 Tory’s. Pathetic or what?
