Council tax is set to be frozen for a third consecutive year in South Gloucestershire while the Living Wage will be introduced for low-paid council staff from October 2013.
Civic Centre, Kingswood.
In the authority's first budget proposals since moving to a committee system last May, committee members recommended a budget of £189 million for 2013/14, with council tax for a Band D property to be set at £1,245.50.
The proposals, which were agreed unanimously by the authority's three political groups, will be considered at full Council later this month prior to implementation in April 2013.
The full Council meeting takes place at 7pm on 20 February, at the council's Kingswood Civic Centre. The meeting is open to members of the public and copies of papers will be published in advance on the council's website at www.southglos.gov.uk
