Farington Parish Council has agreed to freeze its precept.

Councillors agreed to keep the budget at £50,000 - the same as the past seven years.

For a band D home, the parish council precept adds an extra £22.63 to the council tax bill every year.

A spokesman said the council was mindful of the current economic climate. Money will be spent on improving the local area.
