East Devon’s share of residents’ annual council tax will not increase in the next year, after district leaders announced a freeze this week.
This means a typical ‘band D’ home in the region will still pay the authority £121.78 in 2014/15.
In a budget speech on Wednesday, district council leader Paul Diviani said he was proud of the authority’s cap on the charge, which is the lowest in Devon.
He added: “I intend again to recommend we freeze our members’ allowances for next year, as we cannot expect our people to understand why we should consider our circumstances to be any different from the majority of the population of East Devon.”
But the annual bill could still rise for householders.
