community council charges

Recommended Posts

I believe that families who do not own a their own transport should qualify for a community council rate reduction.


On what grounds?


I agree that not owning a car should be encouraged, but I don't think the council tax would be the correct mechanism.

Agree with Nugle - they're using a council service so should pay for it.


A lot of people who might not want to own / run a car need to have one precisely because the public transport system is not developed enough to cater for their needs. If anyone deserves a reduction in council tax it's them!


But I do think that people who do not use council services as much (eg people who mostly recycle so use refuse collection less) should get some form of reduction from that part of the tax. Some sort of "pay as you use" type thing?
