John O’Connell, Chief Executive of the Taxpayers Alliance, said: “Taxpayers facing a cost of living crisis want to know they are getting what they pay for from their local authority leaders.
“With households having suffered from the pandemic and now saddled with colossal tax bills, the country needs guidance on prioritizing key services without resorting to punitive tax hikes.
“These figures will allow residents to judge for themselves the bosses of the town halls and to hold their local councils to account.”
