Cheadle residents to be stung by triple whammy tax increase

By timesecholife on in All News, Featured News

RESIDENTS in Cheadle are to be hit by a triple whammy on their Council Tax bills.

Householders will pay an average of almost seven per cent more to the town council from April.

And it emerged this week they’ll also face an increase of almost six per cent on the amount they pay to Staffordshire County Council.

The average bill for policing will also rise at the start of the next financial year.

The county council’s spending plans for 2018/19, part of a new five-year strategy, mean owners of average Band D properties in areas including Cheadle, Uttoxeter and Blythe Bridge will pay an extra £5.20 per month – or £62.40 a year – to the authority.

The average taxpayer will fork out £4.62 more to the town council and 95p more for policing – a total increase of £67.97 – even before expected increases are imposed by Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, which is due to set its own precept next month.
