- 27 February 2012
- From the section Devon
Councillors in Plymouth have agreed to freeze council tax for the second year running.
The authority is using a one-off government grant of £2.4m to support the tax freeze.
Plymouth City Council made the decision at a meeting to set the budget for 2012/13, earlier.
Tax rises agreed by Devon and Cornwall's Police Authority and Devon and Somerset Fire Authority will mean tax bills will rise by 0.36%.
Earlier in the month, the police authority approved plans for a 2% rise in its share of the council tax bill and the fire authority agreed plans for a 3% rise.
