Woking Conservatives ensure zero Council Tax increase

The Leader of Woking Borough Council, John Kingsbury, issued a speech that told members of the council that, despite a very tough financial year, his administration had prevented any increase in the burden to local taxpayers.

Taking advantage of the Conservative and Liberal Democrat Coalition's offer to offset 2.5% of the Council Tax for any council able to limit their own increase to 2.5%, the council has demonstrated the results of Conservative councils and ministers working together.
