Scotland's biggest local authority expects to see a rising council tax take next year - but said the SNP's "unfunded council tax freeze" continues to put pressure on services.

Labour-led Glasgow City Council expects to balance the books despite "year after year of disproportionate cuts" from the Scottish Government.

The city's financial forecast for 2015/2016 says it will need to find savings to meet a spending gap of £28.9 million.

Although the total local government budget in Scotland is the same as last year, Glasgow will again receive a smaller percentage of the available budget, resulting in a £13.1 million cut from the Scottish Government, it said.

In addition, the council faces inflation totalling £8.6 million and unavoidable costs of £7 million. The council also intends to make a contribution to reserves of £3 million.

The required savings are reduced by the ongoing effect of decisions in previous years, which will save around £2 million, and, although council tax will remain frozen, it expects to see an increase in council tax payments of about £0.8 million.

Options to meet the savings target will be brought forward between now and the setting of the council's budget in February.

Glasgow City Council leader Gordon Matheson said: "Everyone understands that the Scottish Government has subjected the people of Glasgow to year after year of disproportionate cuts.

"Added to the unfunded council tax freeze which continues to put real pressure on services, it's only as a result of clear political leadership and sound financial planning that we've survived the last few years with no really substantial damage to services.

"Tough as they are, we will meet next year's challenges, however the Scottish Government has saved the really big cuts for the two or three years after 2015.

"It's not good enough for them to continue to pretend that everything's fine; we're going to need to hear some big ideas from them and we're going to need to hear them soon."
