Council Tax Freeze Expected in West Dorset
7:17am 26th February 2013
Despite being under financial strain - West Dorset District Council says it's not planning to put up its share of the council tax bill.
The local authority is expected to confirm the freeze when it meets today.
West Dorset District Council will get almost 10% less from central Government to pay for local services this financial year.
That's a reduction of £571,584 on the previous year.
But despite that they say they'll be no rise in parking charges, no reductions to services and no rise in their share of the council tax bill.
They're putting that down to careful financial management and moving into cleaner greener offices - albeit at a cost £9.7M.
