South Norfolk Liberal Democrats propose 2pc council tax cut
Liberal Democrats in South Norfolk have called in a decision by council leaders to spend more than �550,000 on a Big Society project.
The district council is looking to spend �560,000 in 2012/13, which will be ploughed into its five neighbourhood boards as part of a Localism project.
Tory leaders are also looking to freeze the council tax precept in the forthcoming financial year to �130.68 on an average band D property.
However, the South Norfolk Liberal Democrat group are proposing that council tax can be reduced by 2pc by reducing the Localism funding from �560,000 to �440,000.
The call in will be discussed at a special scrutiny committee on Monday.
A full council meeting will set South Norfolk Council's 2012/13 budget on Wednesday night.
