Council tax rise and cuts to services in Oxfordshire

Council tax looks set to rise 1.99% in Oxfordshire as the council aims to save £77m between now and 2017.

The biggest savings will be £28m in Adult Social Care. Charges for day centres will triple in the next two years from £4.18 a day to £15 for five hours for pensioners.

Other proposals include an £800,000 cut from the children's centres budget but the council insist none of Oxfordshire's 44 centres will close. The council will also introduce 24-hour charges at park & rides.
