Lib Dems on South Lakeland freeze council tax for record fifth time
South Lakes MP Tim Farron has today congratulated Lib Dem run South Lakeland District Council for freezing council tax for a record fifth year in a row.
Tim said "I'm proud that South Lakeland council have now frozen council tax for five successive years. This will be the first time that any district or county council has frozen council tax for the whole of a five year parliament.
"It's a recognition that we are in a period of financial challenge and the council has a responsibility to leave as much money as possible in the local economy and in our resident's pockets."
