Brent Council is proposing a council tax freeze for this year as the council presses ahead with its Improvement and Efficiency Action Plan. Brent currently has the fourth lowest council tax out of the 20 outer London boroughs.
Cllr Paul Lorber, Leader of Brent Council said: “We are very pleased to offer a freeze in the council tax, the first ever at Brent. We felt it was important to help residents in these difficult economic times, but investment continues towards our key priorities of Regeneration, Young People, Sustainability and a Safer Brent.”
The GLA will meet on 10 February to consider the Mayor of London’s proposal to freeze the GLA Band D contribution for 2010/11 at last year’s level of £309.82. If this is accepted the overall council tax at Band D in Brent would be £1,368.76, the same as in 2009/10.
