COUNCIL tax is set to rise by less than one per cent, if a recommendation by council bosses is approved.

The executive of Bromley council suggested the increase for 2010/2011, reflecting a significant reduction of government funding for the coming year.

If it is approved by a meeting of the full council next Monday, then the increase will be the lowest since council tax was introduced in 1993.

Councillor Stephen Carr, council leader, said: "Our aim in setting this year's budget was simple: to cut out waste, protect services and provide value for money."

The rise of 0.94 per cent would mean that someone living in an average band D property will have to pay £1,301.13 per year for their 2010/2011 council tax, instead of £1,288.98 for last year.
