Breakdown of charge

The full amount of Council Tax you pay consists of five individual charges known as 'precepts' from five separate authorities. Every £1 of Council Tax you pay is split in the following way for services:

The figure for Town and Parish Councils is an average. What you pay will depend on your own Town or Parish Council’s precept. The following table shows the total amount charged by each authority and the average cost to a Band D Council Tax payer:

We have frozen our share of your Council Tax for a fifth successive year, at £182.15 for a Band D property. All other band charges are calculated as a percentage of the Band D charge:

A     6/9ths (two-thirds of the full charge)         E     11/9ths
B   7/9ths   F   13/9ths
C   8/9ths   G   15/9ths
D   9/9ths (the full charge)   H   18/9ths (twice the full charge)

Services

The amount of Council Tax we receive amounts to 55% of the cost for the services we provide in Mid Devon. The balance is paid for by Government Grants, Parish Precepts, fees and charges for services we provide and any collection surplus available from last year's Council Tax. The amount of grant we receive from Central Government is based on our needs, resources and the population of the area.

We will continue to deliver a wide range of services for our residents against a continuing backdrop of central government cuts to our funding, which amount to over £2.5 million since 2010. During 2015/16 we will continue to stimulate more economic activity across the District, including the provision of extra homes – both private and social and implement changes to the waste collection service in order to increase recycling rates and reduce operational costs by around £500k per year.
