Sooner rather than later for special intervention if this is anything to go by as an indicator. Council tax increase of 5% but still slashing services. Where is the money going ? Not on wages and gold plated pensions by any chance ? The council is now unaffordable and needs to be scrapped asap - preferably without compensation to the senior officers who got it into this mess.

Perhaps we can hope that WBC is next on the list for this kind of intervention ? Long overdue in many peoples opinion.

You can request clarification, if need be using the freedom of information act. Good luck with dealing with them. NDC are a bit like the ministry of truth these days. Welcome to the boards - it's great to see another contributor.

Another nail in the coffin for local business. As well as voting itself a very under publicised 5% increase in council tax the local council are determined to screw every penny from the local population. I wonder how long before the costs escalate just like they have in Newbury? Also I think we have a right to know just how much of this increase in taxation is going in wage rises - particularly for the senior staff and officers ? It would be interesting to know how much more is being paid from this April for any given role to say 5 years ago. I think we would be shocked to find how the supposed wage freeze (1%) has been broken. Time for a huge axe to be wielded in cutting this waste of space money eating machine back to a proper size.

Browsed an obscure Community section in the printed NWN which was tucked inside the property pages. Saw that the council are raising the council tax by 5%. Surely this should have been on the front page as a leading article ? It's a sad day when the NWN helps bury bad local news.
