Vote Conservative for lower council tax, better services, and great value for money.
- Your vote today will determine how your local services are run, how much you pay for them and who is best able to manage your money.
- Conservative councils across the country are delivering for local residents. They are focused on the services you rely on. Filling potholes. Cutting crime. Collecting your bins on time. All while keeping your council tax low.
