Why is council tax going to increase?

Dear Sir, — Could someone from our council please explain why there is going to be a rise in the council tax? There has been plenty of new houses built in the last 12 months, not just in Congleton but all over Cheshire. Over the last 12 months alone in Congleton there has been built 233 new homes and building still going on. So this is all extra money going into the council coffers. Why are our bills going up? — Yours faithfully,

“TRIGGSTER”
