Parish council agrees three per cent tax rise

COUNCIL taxpayers in Watlington are to pay more for the services provided by the parish council.

Members agreed a rise of three per cent at a meeting on Tuesday.

This means that from April 1, a typical band D householder will pay £75.47 a year, a rise of £2.19, for that part of their bill.

Councillor Tim Horton, chairman of the council’s finance committee, said the rise would enable the council to realise its “greater ambitions”.

These included developing a neighbourhood plan as well as continuing to support local organisations and charities.
