The Leader of Caerphilly County Borough Council has unveiled a set of ambitious budget proposals for 2022/23.
Despite having to find around £17million to meet unavoidable inflationary cost pressures, the draft budget includes £10million of investment and protects frontline services from cuts as the authority recovers from the ongoing pandemic.
The budget also includes a proposed Council Tax increase of 2.5%, which is well below the rate of inflation and the lowest increase for a number of years. It equates to a 59p weekly increase for an average band D property.
