Mrs Gill started this petition to Mayor of London Borough of Lewisham and

I am a Lewisham resident. 

I can no longer afford to pay my council tax. I used to pay £122.00 a month until 31 March 2021.

I received a letter for my April 2021/2022 Council Tax bill, which has been increased £122.00 to £155.00. 

Like many of you, I have had my finances impacted by COVID. 

I urge you to sign the petition and let the Council know that we as ordinary people cannot afford this increase. For me, it is an extra food shop a week.

I understand that Councils need money to provide us with services, but we have all been impacted by the last year. 

There are other Councils across London and the Country that have balanced their books by using business initiatives, and looking at increasing their streams of income.

Raising our taxes is not the only way to increase income for the Council. 

We urge Lewisham to allow us- the ordinary people to pay as we used to while they look at ways to increase revenue and deliver the services we deserve.

Our Councils are supposed to protect us and provide for us, not take away income from residents that we cannot afford to part with.

Sign this today so we can make our voice heard.
