Rushcliffe Borough Council council tax level set to continue to be lowest in Nottinghamshire
Rushcliffe Borough Council’s council tax level is set to continue to be the lowest in Nottinghamshire after its cabinet discussed its 2021/22 budget strategy.
The council cabinet recommended £147.36 for a band D property from April, an increase of £4.62 from last year.
Cabinet portfolio holder for finance Gordon Moore said an ambitious £38m capital programme on key projects was still planned for the coming years, despite the pandemic.
He said: “Those in a Band D property in the borough still pay among the lowest figures of anywhere in the country despite the unprecedented challenges of covid-19.
“The budget focuses on economic recovery and growth, supporting the most vulnerable in our community and ensuring that health and wellbeing, carbon reduction and supporting the environment remain high priorities.
“We’re pleased to set out this plan that will see the council continue to invest significant capital within the borough with major investments such as Bingham Hub, the crematorium, an upgrade of facilities at leisure centres and support for affordable housing.”
A full council meeting on March 4 will discuss the proposed budget.
