For years, Westminster has delivered excellent services while maintaining the lowest Council Tax in the UK.
Under Westminster Conservatives, our City’s Council Tax has, band for band, remained less than half of some of its neighbouring London boroughs.
Council Tax is a highly regressive tax. It disproportionally affects those with the lowest incomes.
Councils are not able to raise Council Tax on the highest value properties, without also raising the tax on poorer households.
However, we’ve led the way in trying to make the way local authorities raise their funds fairer by launching our Voluntary Council Tax Contribution initiative, offering the chance for people who can afford to pay more to do so without raising Council Tax for all.
To date the initiative has raised over £1 million. This has been well spent supporting rough sleepers, young people and tackling social isolation and loneliness. With households facing higher bills from elsewhere, Westminster Conservatives are committed to keeping your Council Tax as low as possible.
If elected, we will seek to retain the lowest Council Tax in the UK for the next four years.
