HILLINGDON Council's draft budget for next year freezes council tax at its current level.
Council leader Ray Puddifoot told the Gazette the authority has been working on the budget for more than three months, wrestling with an expected £20million budget cut from the government.
More redundancies are being made to help pay for the cuts, but he insists they will not hit 'front-line' services.
"We are losing staff, but it will be in management to director level," he said. "In areas such as libraries we are actually increasing staff."
With a zero increase in council tax, there are clearly many winners, but what these figures show is that there are also a lot of losers.
