East Hampshire Conservatives keep Council Tax rise to just 6p a week

Conservative controlled East Hampshire District Council has increased its 2012-13 share of the Council Tax by 2.5% to protect front-line services.

This is only the second increase in the last 6 years and represents an extra £3.28 on a Band D property per year, or 6p per week.

The rise was considered the best way to maintain the Council’s services over the long term in the face of a stuttering economy and diminishing government grants.

Joint bin collections save money

East Hampshire Conservatives have forged links with Winchester City Council to jointy provide a waste service across the two council areas.

This service, introduced in October 2011, is expected to save East Hampshire residents more than £1m a year thanks to more efficient working practices.
