Waveney council tax freeze is approved
Waveney District Council has approved plans to freeze its portion of council for a second consecutive year.
A full meeting of the council decided on Wednesday night to follow Government recommendations and freeze council tax meaning a Band D property will pay �147.51 for the next year.
The council's first ever formal strategic business plan mapping out Waveney's social and economic vision for the next 10 years was also formally approved at the same meeting.
Replacing the council's current corporate plan, it outlines Waveney's professional and business focused approach to delivering services and, according to Council Leader Colin Law, focuses much of its attention on the promotion of economic growth.
Mr Law said: 'We want to be building thriving communities through a strong, sustainable, and dynamic local economy, offering our communities more stable, high quality and high value jobs, with increased opportunities for all, and providing affordable homes for local people. '
'At the same time we will continue to drive down the costs of local government and the public sector as a whole in a number of way.
'This will be a natural continuation and expansion of our approaches to partnerships, enabling and localism that have already been delivering so much success.'
