When North Lincolnshire Council’s 2020/21 budget was approved at the latest 'Full Council' meeting, the authority's Leader, Coun Rob Waltham (Brigg & Wolds), said: “We have a budget that is all inclusive, works for everyone in North Lincolnshire, and keeps our promise to keep council tax as low as possible whilst serving the needs of everyone that needs protection. It’s a budget that regenerates North Lincolnshire and makes employment and better paid jobs a priority.
“This budget will indicate our strongest possible policy set of environment measures to sustain North Lincolnshire for future generations.”
Coun Carl Sherwood (Brigg & Wolds), Cabinet Member for Environment and Community Wellbeing, said: “We all have to do our part to make sure the world is a better place for future generations taking into account global climate change and we as a council are leading with initiatives such as reducing our carbon footprint, which it has done by 33 per cent over the last three years with an ambitious target to reduce 45 per cent by 2020. The ultimate aim is for a zero carbon footprint.
“I believe the council is approaching the problem with its ambitious but achievable environment policy to 2022. A number of initiatives have been carried out including installing LED street lights, installing biomass boilers at leisure centres and creating the ‘Enhancing our Environment’ grant to enable communities to play their part.”
Amounts payable in council tax are different in other local towns and villages like Broughton, Cadney & Howsham, Barnetby, Elsham, Hibaldstow, Kirmington & Croxton, Scawby, Melton Ross, Horksktow and Wrawby.
Neighbouring West Lindsey District Council collects the council tax in Kettleby, Bigby, Owmby, Searby, Grasby and North & South Kelsey. The West Lindsey authority has agreed a council tax increase of two per cent for 2020/2021.
