Not quite a cut in the strictest sense of the word. Eric Pickles’s cancelling of plans for council tax revaluation in England, means increases in council tax that would have resulted from the revaluation will not now occur.
Here’s what Eric Pickles said in his announcement,
“We are today confirming that there will be no council tax revaluation which could have pushed up taxes on people’s homes.”
The BBC reports in on the change HERE, and ConservativeHome have more details on this new policy, and why it’s to be applauded, not least as government inspectors will not now be compiling a database of everything to do with our homes.
