Reply To: Increase in Council Tax this year..5% to 15%


Plans to increase council tax in Croydon by 15% have been approved by the government.

Croydon Council sought permission to impose the rise without a referendum after declaring itself bankrupt for the second time in three years in November.

Conservative mayor Jason Perry blamed the hike on “financial failures of the previous administration”.

Elsewhere, Thurrock have also had requests approved to raise council tax by 10%.
