The Cabinet will meet to make a formal recommendation on Tuesday 3 February. A final decision will be taken at a meeting of Surrey’s Full Council on Tuesday 10 February.
Leader David Hodge said: “With unprecedented demand for services we are proposing a 1.99% increase, which is the bare minimum we need given that our government grant has gone down £24 million this year. Anything more would mean wasting as much as £2m on a referendum.
“It should be remembered that we’ve saved £260m in the last four years – equivalent to around a quarter of our budget – despite the huge increase in demand for school places and adult social care, with the latter set to soak up all those savings by next year.”

The charity has helped thousands of people and saved many lives after attending more than 25,000 call-outs over the last quarter of a century.
Air Ambulance Head of Promotions Katie Eeles said: “The service we provide today would simply not be possible without the kind support of the public.
“The need for our life-saving service will never go away, and your support will help to ensure that we can continue helping patients who need us for many years to come.”
Tickets for the WIN A MINI raffle cost £5 each and can be purchased online at www.raffle.me.uk. The draw will take place on December 15th, 2015, making it a perfect Christmas present for one lucky winner.

The South East Regional Crime Unit (SEROCU) is inviting regional small and medium enterprise (SME) to the Cyber-security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP) due to be launched next week, on Thursday 29 January.
Following the launch of a similar node in the East Midlands in 2014, SEROCU alongside National Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-UK) are creating a South East based regional information sharing node sitting on the national CiSP platform.
SME’s from Sussex are being invited to attend the free event taking place in Berkshire.
Craig Jones, Head of the Cyber Crime Unit in SEROCU, said: “The CiSP initiative is primarily for the ‘network defenders’ and ICT managers of small and medium enterprises (SMEs), but is applicable to any company that has a networked computer system.
The benefits of joining the CiSP are to provide companies and businesses with:
· Opportunity to engage with industry and government counterparts in a secure environment;
· Obtain early warning of cyber threats;
· Seek advice from other CiSP members;
· Participate in building pooled knowledge;
· Learn from experiences, mistakes and successes of other users without fear of exposing organisation sensitivities.
“There is no cost to attendees or in joining the CiSP. The day will be facilitated by the Cyber Crime Unit of the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU) and CERT-UK, who will provide comprehensive detail of the initiative and demonstrate the tangible benefits for SMEs.”
The aim of the day will be to:
If you represent a SME and would like to attend the event which will take place in the Berkshire area between 8.30am and 3.30pm please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The regional concept is modelled on that of the national CiSP. Launched in March 2013, CiSP is a joint, collaborative initiative between industry and government to share cyber threat and vulnerability information in order to increase overall situational awareness of the cyber threat, and therefore reduce the impact upon business. The national CiSP is now part of the UK Computer Emergency Response Team, CERT-UK. Launched in March 2014, CERT-UK works closely with industry, government and academia to enhance UK cyber resilience.
