Council Tax reduction announced for Amber Valley

Amber Valley Borough Council has said it will reduce its share of the Council Tax – the first such reduction in more than 20 years.

However, the Borough Council’s element of local Council Tax bills is less than 10%, with Derbyshire County Council, the Police and the Fire Authority accounting for much of the remainder. Residents’ bills will therefore still increase, despite Amber Valley’s reduction.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Alan Cox, commented: “We are very happy to be able to announce a reduction of 0.25% in the level of Council Tax for 2016. The reduction is being made possible by reducing the budget for councillors’ allowances.

“The Council is facing a challenging future because of the reduction in external grant which is paid by Central Government to support local services. However, I am confident that, with our track record of prudent financial management, we will respond positively and continue providing excellent local services.”
