Extra town charge spread more thinly

1:56pm Thursday 1st March 2012

The issue about the extra charge from the Town Council following their taking over responsibility for certain town facilities and the lack of a corresponding reduction from Cheshire East is precisely the concern raised some weeks ago.The fact is that the extra town charge is spread over a much smaller number of people than any corresponding reduction at county level.

So unless either the county sets different tax rates for different areas or all areas adopt a similar policy, then this was always going to be the result.
