The government has set out its intentions for the Local Government Finance Settlement (the ‘Settlement’) for 2024 to 2025. Whereas there is a proposed core council tax referendum limit for local authorities of up to 3%, SLCC is pleased to note that once again there is no council tax referendum principles for mayoral combined authorities or town and parish councils for the upcoming financial year.
The proposed Settlement measures are subject to change following a current government consultation and subsequent review, with the final Settlement due to be published soon.
