Stop Council Stealth Taxes

Comment 6th July 2010

Councils should not have the right to raise revenue by charging for services that are already included in their remit.

This includes the levying of arbitrary fines for infringement of policies, made by the Council but which have little or no standing in in any other law.

Specifically this is in respect of garbage-related 'offences' such as using the wrong bin or overloading bins.

Why does this matter?

Councils should be made to fulfil their duties as a service organisation using the Council Tax already levied.
