District council cabinet agrees to consult on council tax freeze
A meeting of the district council’s cabinet today agreed to consult members of the public on a freezing of council tax.
Officers told South Kesteven District Council’s cabinet today that with all planned spending taken into account, a freeze on council tax would be possible.
Leader of the Council Linda Neal said: “Council tax has not increased over the time of this council. That’s a real achievement and everyone who works for this organisation should be proud of themselves because without everyone working together as a team these things would not have been achievable.”
Coun Neal said savings had had to be made but these had not affected front line services.
Council rents are predicted to increase by 3.56 per cent taking the average rent to £80.91.
