Join us to oppose council tax increases in Richmondshire

February 17, 2012 8:14 AM

Richmondshire District Council is planning a 3% rise in council tax, not only for 2012/13, but for subsequent years too. This Saturday, TPA supporters will be meeting in Richmond, North Yorkshire, to collect signatures for our petition calling on councillors to reject an increase. We will be meeting at the Market Cross at 11.00 am. If you think you can make it, please contact me.

All those councils who are thinking about raising council tax should be following the lead of councils like South Holland in Lincolnshire, who are not increasing the burden on local residents, and are reducing bills instead. Councils planning increases are in the minority, and we need to send them a clear message that if the majority of councils can either freeze or reduce bills, there is no excuse for them not to do the same.

What: Richmondshire Action Day
Where: Market Cross, Richmond, North Yorkshire
When: 11.00 am, Saturday 18 February
