Council tax to go up

Council taxes in Redbridge are to rise for the first time in six years, the council has announced. A band D house will be charged an extra £24.69 a year, with an overall increase of 1.78%.

The council has been dealing with an overall reduction in funding from central government of £100m, and has been facing a steadily increasing population in the borough. Many of the savings have been made in so-called “back office” operations.

 

The full list of charges is as follows:
