COUNCIL Tax for Thurrock residents is set to soar by 5% in April.
The Conservative-led administration at Thurrock Council recommended the proposals at a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday night.
The details were set out in Item 14 of the agenda. As you may see from our film below, the twenty five minutes taken up discussing the item, concentrated on the £1.5 million proposed spend on litter and potholes.
For many Thurrock Coucnil taxpayers, the bottom line is as follows:
1. A 3% Adult Social Care payment in 2018/19.
2. A 1.99% general council tax increase in 2018/19.
There may also be a considerable increase through the police element.
