HRG and Council Tax – The Truth

Money to illustrate council tax in Henley on Thames

The Conservative Candidate claims that HRG is a high tax and spend party.

WHAT IS THE TRUTH?

Last year HRG maintained the value of the precept – the proportion of rates paid to the town.

Henley Town Council increased the tax by £6.09 per year.
(That’s 12p a week for a Band D Household)

Conservative Controlled OCC and SODC increased the tax by a total of £85.60

OCC raised the tax but cut services – including support for PCSOs.

Henley Town Council have raised the tax to maintain some of the services.

How does Henley compare with other South Oxfordshire towns?

Thame………. .150.44
Chinnor……… .120.36
Wallingford….. .117.18
Watlington..…. 109.59
Didcot…….…. 106.53
Henley……….. 93.09

#WhyVoteHRG?

Despite covering cuts by the Conservative led County and District Councils, our council tax remains the lowest of any town in South Oxfordshire.

Keeping Henley special is our only concern.
