Rejected petition Freeze Council Tax: COVID - 19

The people of Wales are calling upon the Welsh Assembly to freeze council tax due to the unprecedented pandemic COVID -19

The people of Wales are complying with the government social isolation guidance by avoiding unnecessary travel, working from home where possible, home educating children, avoiding their family, friends & neighbours.

 

People have had to close their businesses, lose their jobs, contracts & incomes, all with fear & a deep aching heart for their loved ones’ safety.

Many people were struggling to cover their monthly household bills prior to the pandemic reaching Wales. Now, in these unprecedented times the people of Wales need reassurance that their local councils will freeze council tax payments until they can return to work.
