Tax freeze?

I am a council tax payer and live in the Chesterfield Borough area. I am interested in the comments made by Cllr John Burrows.

He referred to one off funding by the government and said that accepting the grant would leave the council with a shortfall of funding in every year after 2012/13.

Can I take it that accepting the 3.5% tax increase for 2012/13 will allow the council to freeze council tax in subsequent years?

Which front line services would not be protected if a freeze on council tax increase for 2012/13 was accepted by the council?
