January 2022. Local Conservatives are unhappy about the decision made by the Cotswold District Council to make town and parish councils pay elections.
Conservatives on the council say these costs were previously absorbed by the district.
David Cunningham, Fosseridge Ward councillor, said: “Town and Parish Councils are in dismay.
“People are already suffering extraordinary pressures on their finances and there is uncertainty over the ongoing pandemic. This will hit residents in their pockets when they can least afford it.
He added: “Several Town and Parish Councils have written to the Leader, but despite this it looks as though this administration is not listening to them and ploughing on with this
ill-judged money grab which potentially creates a democratic deficiency.
“Local Councils will find it difficult to justify to residents why their Council Tax bill goes up when there is nothing to show for it and they will have to hold large
reserves of cash ‘just in case’, something that Gloucestershire Association of Parish & Town Councils actively discourages.”
Deputy leader of the District council, Mike Evemy, has defended the decision, which was unanimously passed by the cabinet.
He explained that the Lib Dem administration asked town and parish councils to contribute to election costs for two reasons. “One, we are facing an unprecedented squeeze on our finances. Our Government
grant for 2022/23 year is £228,000 lower with no allowance for inflation - and two, we believe it is right that Town and Parish councils should pay for their elections as happens across the rest of Gloucestershire.
He added: “We set up virtual meetings to listen to the concerns of Town and Parish councils and subsequently agreed to phase in the charges to give them more time to budget for these costs.
The Conservatives believe that the Council should behave like the bank of mum and dad and keep paying these costs.
“Liberal Democrats recognise that town and parish councils are sovereign bodies with the right to charge their residents through their Council Tax for the services
they provide. Elections are fundamental to their organisational structure and it is therefore reasonable to ask them to contribute to the costs incurred when contested elections take place.”
