Council announces a real term cut in its Council Tax for 19th consecutive year
Eastleigh Borough Council has announced a real term cut in its Council Tax for the 19th consecutive year providing its residents with an unrivalled record.
Council Leader Keith House confirmed the real term cut of 1% below December’s published Consumer Price Index for Council Tax in 2022-23 at the Full Council meeting.
This year the average Eastleigh Borough Council element for a Band D household is only £131.97 or just £2.54 per week. Only around 7% of the total Council Tax bill for Eastleigh Borough residents goes to the Council.
Council Leader, Keith House, said, “Our Council Tax for this year represents a real terms cut for 19 years in a row and this will also continue next year making two decades of real term cuts for our residents.”
He added, “We continue to provide high quality, value-for-money services whilst not increasing the Eastleigh Borough Council element of your Council Tax. We believe this to be an unequalled record and commitment anywhere in the country, whilst at the same time helping to protect our frontline services.”
