Question to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government:
To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, if he will make it his policy that the current average council tax across Christchurch, Poole and Bournemouth be used as the base for setting the 2019-20 council tax across the new unitary authority.
Answered by Rishi Sunak - Chancellor of the Exchequer
As I explained in my answer of 22 October to my Hon Friend's Question UIN 180627 and in my answer of 31 October to my Hon Friend's Question UIN 184365, it is now open to the shadow Dorset Council and the shadow Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council to comment on the approach to council tax harmonisation which we are minded to adopt. Having regard to any comments we receive, we will decide the approach to council tax harmonisation to be adopted, and make any legislation necessary for its implementation.
