Plans to increase West Norfolk council tax bills have moved a step closer.
Senior members of Norfolk County Council have agreed a 2.99 per cent rise in its proportion of our bills, although parish and town councils and the police can also increase their bills too.
This rise, one per cent less under the maximum increase allowed, still needs the agreement of the entire county council at a meeting on February 21.
The senior councillors also backed a full review of how the council operates to help it meet a predicted £60m shortfall in its budgets in 2023-24.
Cabinet member for finance, Councillor Andrew Jamieson, said: “We are tightening the council’s belt instead of raising Council Tax even higher than we need to, because we know residents face a rapid rise in the cost of living.
“I’m determined to save money by making the council even more efficient and effective – and I’m determined to keep raising our case for fair funding from the Government.”
