Plans to increase charges for bulky waste collections have been delayed by a council.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council's (GYBC) environmental committee was set to consider proposals to raise charges for the service at a meeting held on Wednesday, November 20.
But a decision on the proposals was referred to a meeting of the council's policy and resources committee on Tuesday, November 26 instead.

The proposed rise would see the cost to remove one item rise from £14 to £20, and for two to three items from £19 to £20.
While the cost of disposing of four items would go up to £40 from £33, while the rate for removing five or six would go from £38 to £40.
Committee chairman Penny Carpenter said: "Our process on charges always goes to policy and resources."
