Stop Press- Council Tax Cut

Southend’s Conservative Cabinet this afternoon agreed to a reduction in Southend Council Tax to 2.95%, that’s a cut of 1%. The reduction will not effect front line services but reflects the continued aim of Conservative lead Southend to keep a low Councuil Tax, indeed Southendwill  have one of the lowest Council Tax charges in Essex, yet it continues to offer a really exciting Capital Budget to keep improving the town. Cllr Lamb welcomed the reduction saying it reflected the economic climate and would help many residents, whilst Cllr Waite said how pleased she was to see £3m in the Capital Budget for The Pier. The budget now goes to full Council shortly.
