Nantwich council tax, cllrs Andrew Martin and David Marren

Nantwich councillors are to raise Council Tax for the town’s 5,200 households by 3.9%.

The rise will provide the council with a precept of £574,958 for the 2018-19 financial year.

It means properties in Band D will pay an extra £4.16 a year for the Nantwich Town Council portion of their bill.

Households are also facing a 4.99% rise in the Cheshire East Council portion of their bill.

Cllr Andrew Martin, (pictured, on left) speaking at last night’s Town Council meeting, questioned the size of the rise in the town council bill.

But Cllr Arthur Moran said the rise was justified given the council now runs a number of facilities and services which used to fall under Cheshire East Council.

These include Nantwich Civic Hall, the indoor market, allotments and public toilets.

Cllr David Marren  (pictured, on right) said there had been ” unanimous cross party agreement” to the rise, and said it only equated to an 8p a week rise.

    Given that Nantwich T/Council have taken accountability for some of Cheshire East’s services. How does Cheshire East justify an increase of 4.9%?
    Also if Nantwich T/Council’s increase is 3.9% why is it not similar ??
