Council tax bills for 2015-16 are like to be frozen by South Kesteven District Council.

People in Bourne and the Deepings are likely to see their council tax bills frozen in 2015-16 after the result of an online consultation in the area.

The poll by South Kesteven District Council resulted in just over 51 per cent of those who took part deciding against a proposed council tax rise of two per cent from April.

More than 100 people voted in the consultation and district council cabinet members voted to follow the result and freeze council tax at a meeting on Monday.

The final council tax level for 2015-16 will be decided at a meeting on March 6 when members will vote on whether to keep it at £127.47 for an average band D property.
