The Morecambe Town Council precept on council tax will stay the same this year.

At the recent meeting of Morecambe Town Council, the budget for 2017/18 was discussed.

It was decided that Morecambe in Bloom would be given £3,000 and festivals would be given £55,000 to include £5,000 towards marketing.

£1,000 was set aside for a youth council which is due to be launched on March 30.

An amount of £7,000 was set for Christmas lights, and £9,000 for management of toilets that are now open at the former Morecambe Dome site.

£5,000 will go towards providing CCTV with the full closure of Lancaster City Council CCTV delayed until September. The town council will be publishing a newsletter quarterly.
