PUBLISHED: 07:00 21 February 2018
Havering Council is set to agree a 3.78pc increase in next year’s Council Tax rates at a meeting tonight (Wednesday, February 20).
If agreed by councillors, the majority of Havering tax payers would see their Band D tax rise from £1,597.73 this year to £1,658.06 in 2018/19.
That is a rise of £60.33.
This is a bigger increase than the 3.5pc agreed last year, with £76.08 of the new charge coming from the social care precept which is used to help fund council-supported care for vulnerable and elderly residents.
As well as agreeing new Council Tax rates, councillors will also be finalising the borough’s capital expenditure programme for the next financial year.
A Recorder reporter will be at tonight’s meeting, and a full report will be online on Thursday morning.
