Hammersmith & Fulham Council has said it plans to cut council tax for the sixth year out of seven and freeze parking charges.
LBH&F has announced its intention to cut council tax by 3% again this April. This reduction will see H&F taxpayers paying the third lowest council tax in the country. Pay and display and permit parking charges are also set to be frozen.
The cumulative saving of six tax cuts, of 3% or more, over the past seven years has reduced council tax by 17%.
Cllr Nicholas Botterill, H&F Council Leader, said: “A radical revolution has seen the council transformed from a cumbersome and bureaucratic place into a lean and dynamic organisation. ”
Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles MP, said: “Once again, Hammersmith & Fulham is leading the way in saving taxpayers’ money and cutting out waste and inefficiency. Other councils across the country should follow its example.”
