Town Council agrees 0% rise in Council Precept

Morley Town Council voted at its meeting last Wednesday to freeze the council tax precept delivering a nil increase on the amount Morley residents will pay to the Council for 2018.

Councillor Bob Gettings said “For the third year running we have frozen the Council Tax Morley residents pay to the Town Council.  We appreciate that Council Tax payers have had significant increases in the Council Tax they have had to pay Leeds City Council and we believe a Council Tax freeze was the fairest way forward.”

The precept Morley residents pay supports additional services across the area including increased levels of Policing, additional gritting of roads, additional highways safety measures, such as speed indication devices (SID), as well as financial support for local community groups and increased enforcement services.

Councillor Robert Finnigan said “Although we have frozen the precept again, Morley residents are still getting additional services that Leeds City Council won’t provide.  The precept amounts to less than 20p a week for a Band D property and for that residents get more Police on local streets, more vigorous enforcement of issues such as anti-social parking and dog fouling, safer roads and more financial support for community groups.”
