Councillors at East Cambridgeshire District Council have agreed to freeze their council tax demand for the second year running.

Council leader James Palmer, said: “As a local authority we have a duty to our residents to deliver the services they need but not at any cost. This year our strong financial position allows us to again freeze our portion of the council tax.

He said ”restructuring” the authority had involved some “difficult decisions” but he believed they had set the council on a stronger course for the future.

“There will be many challenges to come in the future but with our balanced budget and strong financial position, we know we are ready to meet them,” he said.
