Council tax freeze in East Yorkshire

First published in News

COUNCIL tax bills for next year have been frozen after East Yorkshire councillors set their annual budget.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has agreed plans to save £24 million in 2013/14, saying it will not be closing any of its facilities and will spend £22 million on services.

The council expects to lose £47.3 million in funding between 2010/11 and 2016/17, but will fund the council tax freeze – the third in a row – by accepting a Government grant. The authority will also spend £89 million on the region’s infrastructure next year.

“Residents have identified highways maintenance as a top priority and the council will find the funding to repair damaged roads which have taken another battering this winter,” said council leader Stephen Parnaby, who also said a £200,000 grant fund for town and parish councils will continue for another year.
