Norfolk County Council today announced a cut in their planned council tax rise. It will now be 5.7%, a cut of 2% on their original plans. This should ensure an end to the threat of capping. I've called today for LibDem controlled North Norfolk District Council to follow suit today and written to Norman Lamb to ask him to bring his influence to bear on them. It really is a scandal that a Group D house is charged the same in North Norfolk as it is in London. £1131 is what we pay. My house in Swanton Abbott is Group D and I'd love someone to quantify exactly what services we get for that amount. I'm going to do a lot of research on this in the coming months because I feel just as angry about it as other people. Watch this space.
