Staffordshire Borough Councillors have opposed plans for the Hs2 high-speed railway, claiming it has no benefit for the county’s residents or businesses.


A “windfall” for Stafford Borough Council which could mean a 2% reduction in Council Tax was met with strong opposition at a council meeting.

The Conservative proposal, which sets to reduce Council tax by 2% in 2014/15, comes as a result of a projected extra income of over £129,000 from the New Homes Bonus scheme.
