Norwich City Council tax is frozen in budget

Council tax in Norwich has been frozen in a £21.5m budget agreed by members.

The city council agreed to take £1m out of its reserves to prevent cuts to front-line services in 2011/2012 .

A full review of services is taking place in the summer. The council is looking to save £12.2m over the next four years.

The council has not announced any job cuts, but has not ruled out future cuts and has made available a £1m pot to pay for any future redundancies.

The budget was backed by councillors on Tuesday night.

Norfolk County Council and Norfolk Police Authority also froze their parts of the council tax.

Norwich City Council is run by a Labour minority administration.
