Ealing's Labour Council has revealed its proposed council tax increase for the upcoming financial year 2021/22.
At last Thursday's scrutiny meeting, the Council revealed its plans for the proposed hike, with potentially a big increase in Band D by nearly 6%.
The new proposed council tax totals for each band are outlined below:
• Band A – £1,109.77
• Band B – £1,294.73
• Band C – £1,479.69
• Band D – £1,664.65
• Band E – £2,034.57
• Band F – £2,404.49
• Band G – £2,774.42
• Band H – £3,329.30
Our own Councillor for Ealing Broadway and Finance Spokesperson, Cllr Anthony Young has stated on the matter that: “Extra government funding this year has helped Ealing Council to bring in a balanced budget, whilst the Mayor of London’s 10% council tax increase paves over the mismanagement cracks at the GLA and TfL helm.”
No representative from Ealing Labour has given any comment to date.
