As Brenda from Bristol said when told of another election - "Oh no! Not again"

Unfortunately, we in Nunthorpe may be saying the same thing when/if the Government allows an increase in the cap on Council Tax.

Previously, local authorities could only put council tax up by 2% thanks to a Government cap, any further increase had to go to a referendum vote  across the Borough . Although not yet confirmed, as of March 2018, councils could raise bills by up to 5.99% without holding a vote - making it the biggest hike for 14 years.
