Hedge End Freezes Council Tax
The Council is still discussing changes to charges for community and sports facilities, but it is looking likely that all hirers will be subject to an increase in line with inflation for the coming year. That is what is required to balance the books, and a working party convened on 30th December failed after two hours of discussions to come up with a feasible and fair alternative. Its recommendation to the January Recreation and Amenities Committee will be to confirm a 5.2% increase for all hirers and that the working party will continue to meet to discuss ways of addressing historical anomalies in the Council's charging structures.
