Council Tax

The councils strategic plan outlines how the council had planned to cap any yearly increases in council tax by £5 (42p a month). However, the council is mindful of the current financial climate with residents experiencing significant rises in living costs. With this in mind, the council has resolved to increase council tax by £1.48 for the year (12p a month). These extra funds will help ensure the council is still able to maintain its current level of delivery for residents and will subsidise the increase in costs.

The amounts stated are based on a council tax D band, the percentage increase for all residents will be 1.35%.
