    • Stephen Lloyd MP at East Grinstead event

    • Article: Feb 25, 2018

      The Conservative proposal of only a 4.95% increase in council tax (2% for adult social care and 2.95% for general purposes) has been approved by the Council. This is lower than the 5.95% rise that is permitted by government, where 3% of this would be ringfenced to help address the adult social care crisis. Lib Dems voted against this proposal as other council services will likely have to be cut to make up the shortfall for adult social care. Morwen Millson, a Lib Dem councillor for Horsham Riverside Division, explains why the Lib Dems are so concerned by the Council's move.
