Cabinet to decide on Council Tax freeze

Published Friday, 06 February 2015

Enfield Council’s Cabinet will decide on Wednesday 11 February whether to proceed with a freeze on Council Tax for the sixth consecutive year.

If agreed, Enfield’s bill for an average (Band D) property for 2015/16 would remain at £1,100.34 per year.

The papers which will be discussed at Wednesday night’s meeting show government funding for the council has dropped by £21 million for 2015/16 compared with 2014/15. It proposes savings and additional income of £32.1 million, with around £17 million proposed to come from departmental savings and a further £15.1 million from revolutionising services under the Council’s innovative Enfield 2017 scheme.

Cllr Andrew Stafford, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Finance said “We need to make sure that every penny counts during these tough economic times to protect and deliver the vital services our residents need in the face of consistently shrinking budgets.

“This year’s budget will mean difficult decisions for the cabinet and the council but one thing is certain; we will do everything we can to insulate residents from the impact of the savings we will make this year and in coming years, while producing a prudent and sensible budget which delivers services in the most efficient way possible.”
