District Council to support residents with a second tax freeze

Warwick District Council has agreed a budget which will see its element of Council Tax frozen for a second year running.

At the Full Council meeting, held on Monday 27 February, Councillors approved a range of financial support measures which included keeping the levy paid by a Band D household to the District Council at the 2021 rate of £176.86 per year and increasing the maximum reduction payable under the Local Council Tax Reduction Scheme from 85% to 100%.

The freeze will not impact on the services it provides. These include waste and recycling collections, planning, business support, housing, maintaining and caring for green spaces, street cleaning, public health and safety, arts and sports provision and running elections.

At the same meeting the Council agreed to allocate £52,000 towards supporting the district’s foodbanks during the next financial year.
