A statement from the Croydon Constitutionalists on the proposed 15% council tax rise in Croydon.
The likely 15% Council Tax rise is devastating news for the people of Croydon, who are already being hit by increased heating costs, general inflation, tax rises. and the proposed ULEZ expansion. All whilst services continue to be reduced.
This increase is just the latest failure by the council, but blame really must be apportioned to the Newman administration who as recognised by their auditors, really had no control of the money they lent to Brick by Brick or spent on seemingly anything they could. This will take years to unwind we just hope the town can bounce back from the mismanagement of its own council.
