Whitehall cuts county funding
CUTS are being made to the amount councils in Gloucestershire will get from the Government.
The county's police force will also see its central funding cut by 1.6 per cent to a total of £184.5 million in the coming year.
The county council will have £425.9 million to spend – a fall of 2.8 per cent – equal to £1,571 per household.
But the Government was unable to say how much of this was central government grant.
Whitehall figures for the district councils showed Cheltenham borough will get £15 million, Cotswold district will get £11 million and Tewkesbury borough will get £8.5 million.
Leader of Gloucestershire County Council Councillor Mark Hawthorne said: "It's good news for residents that there will be a freeze placed on council tax once again.
"We will continue to work with the district and borough councils to find the best way forward for the county."
