Wandsworth Council Tax Frozen For Fourth Year

And on course again to be country's lowest

Wandsworth's council tax will be frozen for the fourth successive year, putting it on course to again be the country's lowest.
The council has announced it will not be increasing its share of the tax this year and the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has also frozen his share for the third year running. This means the cost for the average Band D property will again be £687.
The amount residents pay for services provided by the council will have been unchanged since 2007.
The council's budget requirement for 2010/2011 will be set at £202m.
The proposals for 2011/2012 will be considered by the finance and corporate resources overview and scrutiny committee on March 2nd before being voted on by the full council on March 9th.

A typical two person household living in the majority of the borough will pay a Band D tax of £682 in 2011/2012 - the same as in the current year. Band D residents liable for the levy of the Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators will pay a slightly higher inclusive figure of £707. Across all properties the average Band D amount payable will remain unchanged at £687.
