Waveney: Council tax freeze approved
Spending chiefs have delivered on a promise to freeze council tax for the next 12 months in the Waveney District.
Members of the council this evening approved the authority’s budget for 2011/12.
At a meeting of full council, the budget was passed with no amendments.
The decision confirms that the portion of council tax received by Waveney District Council will be frozen for the next 12 months, meaning that Band D households will pay �147.51 per month.
Leader Mark Bee said: “A cold wind is currently blowing through the public sector with cuts to services and cuts to funding, as a result of Autumn’s Comprehensive Spending Review.

“In this context there is increasing pressure on councils to deliver the very best services for all communities including, critically, those who are most vulnerable.
“Through extensive consultation with residents, vulnerable groups, older people and even school children we have ensured that our communities have had their voice, that they are heard and that they can trust their council and trust this budget.”
