Derry City Council has struck a 2.58% increase in the annual rates.

SDLP councillor Gerard Diver, Chairperson of the Policy and Resources Committee, said the increase, coupled with a regional rate increase of 2.7% will result in an increase of 40 pence per week to the average residential ratepayer.

He said every effort was made to ensure the increase was kept to a minimum.
