Plymouth City Council tax freeze for second year

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.
