Teignbridge Council tax freeze 'will not mean front-line cuts'

A Devon district council has insisted it can maintain its front-line services while freezing council tax for 2012-13.

Teignbridge District Council said its initial budget proposals would keep the average Band D property tax level at £150.17 for the third year running.

The proposals are set to be considered by the council's ruling executive on 8 February.

The full council is due to set the budget on 24 February. The total budget for 2011/12 was £14.9m.
