Kingston Tories increase Council Tax by 4.99%

Conservative-run Kingston Council plans to increase your council tax by 4.99%, the maximum amount allowed by the Government. The Conservatives increased it above inflation last year too.

These 2 large rises in your council tax from local Conservatives totally break their promise from the 2014council elections when they said they would “freeze council tax for two years”. Local Tories are blaming the new Conservative MP and his Tory Government.

Chessington Cllr Rachel Reid says “When Lib Dems ran Kingston and were in the Coalition, we did freeze council tax.”
