Lambeth’s council tax has been frozen, by Labour, for the second year running. This means that, under Labour, our council tax won’t have risen since 2008.
Labour has frozen the tax whilst increasing spending on important services for local people like the Noise Nuisance Team, Community Support Officers & the Anti-Social Behaviour team.
Labour was elected to run Lambeth in 2006 after the Tories & Lib Dems forced a hike in local council tax of 40% in four years: taking £1000 away from an average family in Gipsy Hill & West Norwood. The Tory-Lib Dem tax hike was the biggest in Lambeth’s history; in contrast, since Labour came to power the average annual increase has been less than 2%.
