Nottingham Conservative budget points

Beyond the usual changes proposed eah year, this year they moved an amendment to require no Council tax increase – to be achieved at the expense of street cleanliness and the improvements to the public realm determined through Area committees.
As usual, the amendment had not been made available to public scrutiny.
So a claim by the Nottingham Conservative leader that the burden was to be met by Councillors took a few minutes to unravel – turned out only 1/7th would be met from Councillors’ allowances.
They also claimed that the 1.95% increase in Council ax they were trying to negate should be named after the Council’s Deputy Leader – in complete defiance of the wide range of councils who’ve made the same increase this year.
