FILEY Town Council has announced a freeze on council tax.

Councillors agreed to maintain the current precept of £120,000 for the next year giving residents a slight reduction on payments.

The council’s finance bosses said the decision to keep the precept at the same level came from the ongoing difficult economic climate and the Government’s expectation that local councils would not increase tax.

The tax figures for Filey are Band A £27.84; Band B: £32.48; Band C: £37.12; Band D: £41.76; Band E: £51.04; Band F: £60.32; Band G: £69.60; Band H: £83.52.
