Council tax bill Credit: PA

Richmondshire's 22,885 householders are among the few across the country to benefit from a freeze in their district council tax.

District Councillors have confirmed that its portion of the annual tax will remain unchanged for the next 12 months.

The Council is one of only a handful in the country not to be levying an increase to their householders.

Following local elections last year our aim was to keep council tax levels as low as possible - and by sound financial management we are going to deliver on that and support our local residents.

This is a budget that will support the whole community."

– Yvonne Peacock, Leader of the Council
