8:30pm Wednesday 9th January 2013 in News
COLCHESTER households face their first council tax hike in three years.
The authority’s coalition cabinet has revealed it intends to increase its portion of the council tax bill by 1.95 per cent.
If approved at a full council meeting next month, an average Band D ratepayer will pay an extra £3.42 a year - or 7p a week.
