Chiltern District Council agree tax increase
AN INCREASE in council tax for Chiltern residents was officially confirmed this evening.
Members of Chiltern District Council voted in favour of a 1.9 per cent increase in the amount of tax residents will pay the authority each year - equivilent to an additional £3.03 for an average Band D property.
The council's cabinet had recommended the increase earlier this month after saying extra cash would be needed for future financial years.
A total of 20 members voted in favour of the increase, six opposed it and there were four abstentions.
