North Lincolnshire Council is to urge local government minister Hilary Armstrong to soften government plans to slash its post-reorganisation damping grant.

The council was granted special transitional relief in 1996 after it was revealed that council tax bills would rise by 28% with the creation of the unitary authority.

A North Lincolnshire delegation will meet Ms Armstrong on Monday to ask her to drop plans to reduce funding from£2.18 million this year to£185,000 from April 1999.

The council said the reduction was too sudden and would add as much as£52 a year to Band D bills.
