People living in Brighton and Hove will be paying almost two per cent more council tax this financial year.
Councillors approved the 1.96 per cent rise last night - the maximum increase allowed. Labour supported the minority Green administration's plan to increase the tax by the maximum amount possible. The Conservatives recommended a tax freeze.
Green councillors said the rise was necessary to safeguard services.
