Council tax frozen in Enfield for fourth year
Council tax has been frozen in the borough for the fourth year in a row.
Following a full council meeting in Enfield Civic Centre on Wednesday, councillors confirmed people living in Band D properties will pay £1,403.34 a year from April.
More than £13million must be slashed from Enfield Borough Council's budget over the next financial year.
However, the authority pledged to protect adult social services, road maintenance, street cleaning, lighting, waste collection and recycling in line with the community's wishes.
The cabinet member for finance and property, Councillor Andrew Stafford, said: “We are doing everything we can to protect residents from hardship by freezing council tax, but we are expecting further government cuts in 2014 to 15 and this means we are going to have to make some incredibly difficult decisions very soon about where our spending priorities lie."
