Potters Bar council tax rise announced.


Council tax bills in Potters Bar will rise next month as the borough council has voted through an increase in its annual charge.

Last night, a full meeting of Hertsmere Borough Council approved an increase in its precept of £5/year for every Band D household.

According to the council: “The small increase is essential to enable us to continue to deliver the key frontline services that we provide to the borough’s residents.

“We’ve managed to keep this increase small by making efficiencies and increasing fees and charges where appropriate.

“We are also taking an enterprising approach by using the council’s assets to generate income.”

The borough council charges just ten per cent of council tax, with the rest payable to the county council, Hertfordshire’s police and crime commissioner and, in some areas, parish councils.
