Newhaven Town Council tax rise way above inflation

Newhaven Town Council have seen fit to increase their council tax take by 5.9 percent

This is way above the current rate of inflation – at a time when many of the people of Newhaven are struggling to make ends meet, and this on top of their earlier increases of 2.7 percent in 2013, 9.4 percent in 2012 & 15.8 percent in 2010.

Are these councillors a bit out of touch? I think they might be!
