Tax rises spark concern for Cheadle families

By timesecholife on in All News, Latest News

A MAJOR tax hike set to hammer household budgets in Cheadle has prompted a wave of concern.

Average council tax bills in the town are set to rise by more than £90 from April after increases announced by every local authority and the emergency services.

Community leaders have this week slammed the ‘ridiculous’ increase and are worried about its impact on low income families.

Members of Staffordshire Moorlands District Council last week voted to raise the authority’s share of the council tax by 2.9 per cent to meet a £10.8 million budget.

The move, added to increases by Staffordshire County Council, the town council, police and fire service in the last month, means Cheadle residents in average Band D properties face an annual bill of £1,694 – up £90.09 on the previous year.
