  1. Do you in general support these proposals to reform Council Tax? https://fairershare.org.uk/
  2. Under the radar somewhat so far apart from Surrey's proposed 15% increase which they eventually rowed back from due to the need to have a local referendum. Public aren't quite ready for this one, but next month's increases are going to be bang up to the max of 5% on average (including the care precept) which is a real increase of 3% or so. But that's just the start of it. Non-core services such as green waste bins & car parking fees are also being hiked. They will in effect add at least a further 5% to many people's overall council tax bill, in some case more than that. But that's just 2016/17. Osborne's squeeze since 2010 will mean most councils will be repeating these increase year on year to the end of the parliament. So 20-25% base increases PLUS a further 5%+ p.a. for ancillary charges/fees = c 50% increases over the next 4 years. Just when sterling devaluation is driving inflation up and real wages down. It won't be Carney raising rates that will cause the next recession, it will be real council tax rises.
