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.

For once I agree with Eric Pickles - they are gutless in not going to the full 2% and going to taxpayers for approval.

One rule for for the high paid council officials and **** the rest of us.
What a load of bigoted rsoles
