COUNCIL tax will rise by five per cent in Conwy. 

Councillors voted in favour of the increase for the 2014/2015 financial year in a meeting at Conwy Council HQ in Bodlondeb today(Thursday, February 20). 

The council supported the recommendation that Band D Council Tax in the county be set at £964.89 - a £45.96 rise from current rates. 

The increase will effect 71 per cent of all residents in the county, who will have to pay an extra 88p per week. 

A council spokesperson said: “Conwy will continue to have the lowest Council Tax at Band D in North Wales and one of the lowest in Wales.” 

The rise will take effect on Tuesday, April 1.
