COUNCIL TAX in Dundee has been increased by 3% for the 2019/20 financial year, putting the band D rate at Β£1,316.

Savings of Β£8.8 million were made in order to set a revenue budget of Β£353.7 million.

Willie Sawers depute convener of the policy and resources committee and finance spokesman said: β€œThis increase of Β£38 or 3% equates to 73p a week for most households in Dundee.

β€œIt is only the third council tax increase in the city in the last 11 years and is lower than the maximum that could have been applied, but I believe it is justified to enable us to include, develop and further enhance our services to deliver on the city’s priorities.

β€œWe approached this year’s budget with the over-arching aim of protecting public services and maintaining our investment in city and council priorities - tackling poverty and inequality, increasing job opportunities, improving the lives of young people, addressing health problems and creating stronger, safer communities.

β€œThe council continues to face considerable challenges, but we have maintained our reputation as a well-run, high performing, award winning and ambitious local authority that delivers best value for our communities. 

β€œWhile we do not underestimate the challenges that may come, we believe the budget proposals agreed today represent the best way of protecting public services.”
