Plan to freeze Wiltshire Council tax until 2013

Wiltshire Council has announced plans to freeze its share of council tax until 2013.

The council's component of the tax makes up 80% of what residents pay. The rest goes to the police, fire service and parish councils.

Authorities that freeze council tax are eligible for a grant equivalent to a 2.5% increase in their share of the levy.

The proposals will be discussed at the authority's budget meeting on Tuesday.
