Proposals to increase part of the council tax bills in West Norfolk by just under three per cent will be considered by Norfolk County Council on January 31st.
It wants to increase its share of the bill by 2.99 per cent, although other councils and the police contributions would also need to be added to our total bills.
The county council is also proposing a review of how it works to tackle a predicted £60 million gap in its finances in the future.
There is also an option for it to increase bills by 3.99% which is the maximum allowed but councillors say they do not want to do that.
Andrew Jamieson, the county councillor responsible for finance, 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.”
Council leader, Councillor Andrew Proctor, said: “We are carrying out a major review of the council, to make it fit for the future.
“We are accelerating our work to transform the way it operates and using technology and other innovations to become as cost effective and responsive as possible.”
