​The announcement of the Local Government Finance Settlement was made this week.

Leader of Northamptonshire County Council Cllr Matt Golby said: “We welcome the news from the Secretary of State which gives us the ability to increase Council Tax by a further 2 per cent over and above the 3 per cent limit.

“This now needs to be discussed, initially by the Conservative Group and then by Cabinet before a final decision is taken at February’s Cabinet meeting.”
