3.23% Council Tax increase approved in North Kesteven

Council Tax in North Kesteven is going up by just over 3% - after councillors approved the rise last night.

District Councillors approved it to fill a funding gap left by the government - the rise in on top of a county-wide increase of taxes by just under 5%.

Meanwhile, the council is taking part in a pilot scheme which will see it keep all of the business rates it collects in the coming year.
