Council leaders say the public will not be asked to fund Government grant cuts as it proposes to freeze council tax for the fourth consecutive year.

Derbyshire Dales District Council plans to reduce the financial impact of funding cuts on residents by resisting the temptation to increase council tax, subject to agreement at a meeting on March 6.

The authority is instead opting to claim the one per cent equivalent council tax increase incentive offered by central Government to local councils that freeze charges.
