More Council Tax Rises

West Berkshire has become the third local council in the county to announce the increase in Council Tax levels.

The authority has declared that the average rise (based on band D properties) will be 3.9%. This adds to above-inflationary rises for parking and other income streams.

Meanwhile, Bracknell Forest became the fourth as the Conservative-dominated council declared it would push for a near-maximum rise of 4.9%.

Maidenhead will see an increase of 2.9%, while Reading has announced a rise of 4.24%.
