The bill for council services to a Band D taxpayer will remain at £1,201.85. Once additional charges for police, fire and parish or town councils are added in, the average Band D bill in the district will be up to £300 higher than the basic bill for services provided by Liberal Democrat-run B&NES.
Cuts of £2.5 million were also in the budget, approved by B&NES councillors at the Guildhall in Bath this evening.
