Council Tax Setting (Agenda Item 10)

Report of the Executive Director Commercialisation.

Minutes:

The Executive Director Commercialisation presented the report which had been issued in the supplement to the Agenda.

 

Councillor Gilbert had no issues with the Council Tax setting.  However, he could not support Recommendation 1 as the Council was asking for extra money for work it was not doing.

 

The Labour Group proposed an additional recommendation that Breckland Council reviews its localised Council Tax Support Grant scheme and reviews the financial impact of providing 100% support for working age persons.  A report to be brought forward to a future Full Council meeting.

 

This proposal was not supported.
