The Guardian – Dismay as households face £2bn council tax increase

The paper reports on a deal to address what it describes the “worsening financial crisis hitting town halls across the country”. The paper says officials in Michael Gove’s levelling up department have told local authority bosses they expect the maximum possible 4.99% increase to be applied to council tax in April – adding about £100 to a typical band D council tax bill
