Council tax slashed by 4%!
Sadly for Barnet residents, it is the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead Council which has achieved this magnificent feat.
Read here how councillors have delivered huge savings whilst refusing to cut front line services.
This is not a once off gimmick in an election year. Over the last three years, Windsor & Maidenhead has delivered real cuts of 7%.
Leader of the council David Burbage is to be congratulated for reminding us what real Conservative councils are capable of achieving. Perhaps instead of wasting £5,000 of taxpayers' money flying off to America business class, former Barnet leader Mike Freer should have taken a short drive along the M4 for a lesson in how to run a council.
