THE AMOUNT of council tax that Whitehill & Bordon residents pay the town council has been frozen for the third year running.

The decision was made on Thursday, December 14, when Whitehill Town Council set its budget and precept for the 2024/25 financial year.

A Band D resident will pay WTC £98.42 while Band C households, which is the most common in the parish, will hand over £87.48 per annum to the council.

The “very robust and financially secure council” decided against a rise because of the cost of living crisis and the town’s increasing population and tax base.

“We appreciate that the larger councils are highly likely to raise their share of council tax, hence the feeling that we must do our bit to support locally,” said WTC leader, Cllr Andy Tree.

“I am very proud that the Whitehill & Bordon Community Party has a proven track of financial astuteness and managing money in a way that effectively serves our residents and provides good value for money in the areas we control.”
