Medway Council has frozen its share of the council tax for the second year running after proposals were agreed at a meeting of the full council.

The charge for an average Band D property will remain at £1,119.15 a year - around £130 less than anywhere else in the county, the authority said.

Medway Council said it had been able to achieve the freeze despite a cut in government funding of 8.3%.

Deputy leader Alan Jarrett said vital frontline services would be maintained.

The Conservative-controlled unitary authority covers Rochester, Chatham and Gillingham.
