Axe the DIY Tax


Liberal Democrats, Dave Barton is calling for an end to the DIY tax, highlighting the failures of both Labour and the Conservatives in managing council initiatives.


Despite promising to scrap Labour's tax on brown bins, the Conservatives have instead raised them after a near-maximum Council Tax increase.

Adding insult to injury, the Conservatives have introduced more levies, including a DIY tax. Families are now facing additional fees when hiring a skip to improve their homes. The Liberal Democrats argue that this tax burden is unfair and puts unnecessary financial strain on households.

By calling for the axing of the DIY tax, the Liberal Democrats aim to alleviate financial pressure on families and hold the council accountable for its actions. Lib Dems Dave Barton is calling for policies that prioritise the needs and well-being of local people, ensuring a fair approach to local governance.
