Council bosses in Lincoln are to meet today to discuss plans to increase council tax to 1.9 percent. The proposed increase follows a comprehensive review of all City of Lincoln Council spending as it faces having to find more than £1 million in the next financial year.

It would mean an increase of just six or seven pence per week for 80 per cent of the city's homes. The authority says people living in Lincoln pay as little as £3.09 per week for all the authority's services.
