The decision was voted through unanimously by councillors attending a meeting at County Hall, Chelmsford last Wednesday.

This means that a Band D household will contribute £66.42 a year for the fire service element of their Council Tax bill. This amounts to £1.28 a week for a 24 hour a day 365 days a year fire service – less than a loaf of bread.

The fire authority said that it was able to keep Council Tax at the same rate as set in 2010 because of “prudential financial management”.
