Final Draft Ten Year Plan (and Rates!)

The final draft goes to Council on Tuesday for final approvbal, and implementation from 1 July.

No surprises are evident following on earlier posts revealing the changes made in the final adoption process on 15 May.

The dropping of the proposed change in the UAGC has had the anticipated substantial effect on rates generally, and removed the intolerable threat posed to owners of lower LV properties. I take some credit for having vigorously campaigned on this issue, but put the final decision down to common sense on the part of councillors who stood to gain from the proposed change.

The deletion of the wharf, grandstand and aquatic centre were also central to our success in keeping Thames rate increases down. 

Here are the final figures contained in the Plan:
