Petition Cap all Welsh county council tax at 3%. A referendum of the public must take place to exceed 3%
Living in Conwy county most of my life, born in Rhyl of Welsh parents and now retired we like everyone else had to suffer a 14.5% council tax increase the last 2 years. It's getting to the point where people living in Wales will either have to downsize their homes or move to England where the capping of such tax is still in force. This along with the Welsh Government soon to have control of 50% of our income tax will drive people and businesses out of Wales.
The council tax for 2 pensioners living together in a standard property they built themselves now removes over 1/6 of their total pensions income. Then currently £1000 of their total pension income is further taxed at 20%.
