Despite record low inflation, council tax bills will be going up for the first time for six years under a county-wide budget voted through today.

Although Welwyn Hatfield Council has decided to freeze its “precept” for 2015/16, the county council voted to increase its own far larger share of the bills by £22.26 for a Band D home – the first rise since 2008/9.
