|Council Agrees to 3% Tax Cut|
Claims council tax now 17% lower than seven years ago
Hammersmith and Fulham Council has agreed that council tax should be cut by 3% its annual Budget Council meeting held on Wednesday, February 27.
This, says the council, means H&F taxpayers will pay the third lowest council tax in Britain while resident satisfaction with services is close to being at an all-time high.
The council adds that the agreement means council tax in H&F will be 17% lower than seven years ago - saving residents more than £45million in the process.
Council Leader, Cllr Nicholas Botterill, says: " Hammersmith and Fulham is the UK’s low tax borough – and that is now official.
" A radical revolution has seen the council transformed from a cumbersome and bureaucratic place into a lean and dynamic organisation.
" From a lower cost base, we are now able to respond rapidly to the needs of our customers - just like the best companies in the private sector do."
