Fine Gael: Will implement 80pc of the savings identified in the Local Government Efficiency Review group report.
These included more road tolls, hikes in the cost of a driving licence, and increased planning fees.
The party plans to introduce water charges, but only after establishing a national body to oversee water infrastructure. It also plans a property tax, and may consider closing "non priority" services and charging more for local services.
The party does not favour water charges. A property tax is likely, but not before 2014.
