Latest news on Precept Referendums

At the National Association of Local Councils AGM, Sajid Javid MP, secretary of state, department of Communities and Local Government (CLG), local government minister, responded: "Your (local councils) role on the front line of local government has never been more important. You hold our communities together. The great strengths of local councils are that they are part of the community. It gives you a unique local insight.

"I want all principal authorities to pass down all monies due to local councils via the local council tax support grant. I am willing to look into introducing stronger guidance on this.

"At the moment I am not going to introduce referendum (council tax capping) principles for local councils as you have been fiscally responsible."
