On the agenda at Council: 23 January 2019

by Lisa Bennett

Knowsley’s full Council meeting takes place at 6pm on Wednesday 23 January 2019.

Here’s our summary of what’s on the agenda:

2019/20 Council Tax Base and Forecast 2018/19 Collection Fund Balance

Council will consider the Council Tax base for 2019/2020 defined as the number of Band D equivalent properties within the Borough.  Knowsley is reporting an additional 729 Band D properties (a 2.1% increase from last year) due to the Council’s successful economic growth strategy and accelerating new house building in the borough. Council will also be presented with the Council Tax Collection Fund forecast for 2018/19.

Notices of Motions

Three notices of motions will be proposed. One to oppose fracking in Knowsley, one to take measures to help tackle climate change and one to help support women and girls in Knowsley who struggle with period poverty.
