Council delays decision on whether to raise Bromley residents’ council tax
10:12 14 February 2017
A decision was expected next week
Residents across the borough will have to wait until next month to find out if their council tax will rise.
Last week Bromley council’s executive met to discuss its budget for the coming year.
The meeting, which took place last Thursday, included mention of raising the borough’s council tax by 1.99 per cent,
The hike in council tax, along with the rest of the budget was set to be approved at a meeting of the council on February 20.
But due to a delay in assuring the Department for Local Government’s financial settlement for the year ahead, the meeting has been postponed until March 1.
Should the figure match the council’s estimates, the borough will face a 1.99 council tax hike along with a two per cent rise in the adult social care precept.
