Tewkesbury agrees council budget for year ahead

Tewkesbury Borough Council has approved its budget for 2021/22 with a budget of £9.27million.

It means a Council Tax rise of £5 per year for a Band D property.

Councillor Robert Vines, lead member for finance and asset management, said: "I'm extremely pleased that we have been able to set a Council Tax increase for a band D property of less than 10p a week without in any way sacrificing the quality of the services the council provides.

"Tewkesbury Borough Council receives a small share of the total amount on householders' council tax bills which is just £129 a year for Band D properties.

"That's less than £2.50 a week to have bins emptied, elections run, benefits paid, food premises inspected, fly tips cleaned up, planning applications determined and many more essential services delivered."
