The Conservative-led Coalition Government has delivered a Council Tax freeze for Tameside.
The news was announced at tonight’s meeting of Full Council.
In the forthcoming year Council Tax will not increase thanks to grant money provided by the Government.
It is the first time since 1979, when the Conservatives controlled Tameside Council, that Council Tax (or formerly, the rates) has not increased in Tameside.
For the last two years, the Conservatives have proposed Council Tax freezes in Tameside, but these were rejected by the ruling Labour Group. Now, thanks to a Conservative-led Government, Tameside residents will finally receive the Council Tax freeze they deserve.
