Aberdeen City Council is not planning to raise council tax levels, its finance convener has said.

Willie Young said the Labour-led administration had decided not to propose a rise, which could have been up to 3%.

Householders who live in properties in Band E to H will still face an increase after MSPs agreed changes.
