Town hall bosses have frozen Council Tax for the fifth year in a row.

Next year, Band D council tax payers in Brent will be £330 better off compared to 2010, meaning the annual bill will remain at £1058.94 for those households.

However, the figure does not include charges added to the bill by the Mayor of London.

Cllr Muhammed Butt, leader of Brent Council, said: “With energy, food costs, rents, fares and water bills rocketing, it is vital that the council does as much as it can to help ease the financial burdens.

“There is a cost of living crisis that is financially squeezing many people to breaking point. Every year we have frozen council tax means a little extra help to hard-pressed households.

“I am determined to strike a fine balance that helps deliver vital services for the most vulnerable whilst providing excellent value for money.’’
