Wealden consultation on council tax increase

A six week consultation is now underway over a proposal to increase council tax for the first time in two years.

Wealden District Council announced a freeze on a council tax increase last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This year the authority is proposing a 2.53% increase on council tax bills from 2022/23, which is equivalent to £5 a year – or 9p a week – for a Band D property.

The consultation launched this month following approval by the council’s Cabinet committee. It will run until Thursday 20 January 2022.
