HRG protect services while keeping council tax rise to 12p per week – why it makes sense to restore the Town Council’s share of council tax.
The Town Council’s tax income for services has been cut every year in real terms since 2014. We are saying it should be restored to its original level to help make up for service cuts by the District and County councils. And remember this is only for the small part of council tax that goes to Henley Town Council: the increase is just 12 pence a week for a Band D household.
Understanding residents’ views on expenditure priorities
At the beginning of September, Henley Residents Group surveyed Henley residents for their view on priorities for grant funding by Henley Town Council. Over 120 residents responded.
As Councillors Ian Reissmann and Jane Smewing said in their introduction to the survey “funding decisions made by Oxfordshire County Council (and other bodies) have meant some services for Henley Residents paid for by the County face being cut back” and they asked for views on how the Town Council how they should pay for the costs of these extra grants, if the Town Council decided to cover any deficiencies.
