Breakdown of 2016/17 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 increased our share of your Council Tax by 2.74% for 2016/17. A Band D property will be required to pay £187.15. It should be remembered that this comes after we froze the Council Tax for five successive years since 2010/11. 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

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 have amounted to circa £3.2 million since 2010. During 2016/17 we will continue to support and stimulate more economic activity across the District, including the provision of extra homes - both private and social.

The implemented changes to the Waste Collection service in order to increase recycling rates and reduce operational costs by circa £500k per year are going well. This is reflected by the significant increase in recycling levels and corresponding decrease in landfill tonnages. We would like to express our thanks to all residents who are actively participating in our new scheme.

As part of the 2016/17 funding settlement received from Central Government the Council has been given provisional funding levels through to 2019/20. These continue to reflect the Government’s Public Sector austerity programme and include further funding cuts of circa £1m. The Council is in the process of compiling and consulting on a new four year Corporate Plan and any objectives and aims will need to take into account our reduced funding levels.
