Copeland Borough Council propose a 1.95% increase in Council Tax


Copeland Council has launched a consultation into next year’s budget – and wants the public’s views.

The council say they must save funds in 2021/22, due largely to the reduction in Central Government grants and the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, and say they are prioritising the delivery of its statutory commitments while increasingly using income and grants to run its discretionary services.

Residents are being asked what they think the council’s priorities should be in terms of Local Government Reform, town centres, the Beacon Museum and open spaces.

The public is also being asked for its views on a number of discretionary services provided by the council, including the collection of garden waste and customer services arrangements.

Copeland Borough Council are proposing a 1.95 per cent increase in their share of council tax. 

Mike Starkie, Mayor of Copeland, said: “We are working incredibly hard to maintain services amidst ever decreasing budgets, and a global pandemic which is having a significant effect on financial resources.

“It’s worth reminding people that we only keep around 11 per cent of the council tax you pay, which is an average of £4.04 per week, for all the services we provide.

“For the sixth consecutive budget, we are not proposing any cuts to frontline services. But the reality is that we do have to save money and are looking at ways that this could be achieved.

“We want to hear our residents’ views on how we spend their money, and I’d urge everyone to respond to our consultation.”
