Blackburn with Darwen council tax set to be agreed
2:00pm Monday 4th March 2013 in News
BLACKBURN with Darwen council is set to approve a council tax freeze tonight and a major spending programme of £73 million for the next three years.
The borough has decided to keep its element of the annual ‘rates’ bill for households at the same level of £1,271.88 for an average family home in Band D as last year.
An average family home in Band D will pay £1,483.42 for borough services in the 12 months from April.
A property in the lowest Band A will pay £988.95 in total for council, police and fire services. Those residents who live in areas with a parish council which levies a charge, will pay slightly more.
The capital programme is also set to be approved at a total of £73 million, much of it for finishing the Building Schools for the Future programme and existing town centre regeneration programmes. Reserves will be maintained at £7.2 million.
