Why is there no referendum on increases in income tax/VAT/NI receipts going up by more than 2%?

BBC: Bedfordshire PCC council tax referendum to go ahead

"A referendum on council tax increase in Bedfordshire which would help fund more police officers is to go ahead."
If all local services had to be paid for by council tax instead of handouts from central government, people would have to think long and hard about how much government they want. Instead, we have this ridiculous situation where working people and businesses get their taxes jacked up to fund a council tax cut. Nobody gains unless they are very low income in a very expensive house
