Fife Council has no plans to introduce a workplace car parking levy as it seeks to find almost £5 million of savings in the coming year.
The mixed urban and rural nature of the region, combined with a lack of suitable public transport, have been cited as reasons for dismissing the hike.
The introduction of a tourist tax also looks likely to be rejected in the coming year, although it could be considered in the future.
The decisions by Fife’s joint SNP-Labour administration were revealed as co-leaders David Alexander and David Ross unveiled their 2019-20 budget proposals, due to go before the full council for approval this week.
If passed, Fifers will face a 3% council tax rise roughly in line with inflation, as well as an increase in prices for school dinners, burials and some other services.
