The figure for Town and Parish Councils is an average. What you'll pay depends on your own Town or Parish Council’s precept, see Town and Parish Council precepts below.

The following table shows the total amount charged by each authority and the average cost to a Band 'D' Council Tax payer:

Although we've increased our share of Council Tax by 2.67% for 2017/18, our overall proportion has decreased from 11.4% to 10.9% between 2014/15 and 2017/18. A Band 'D' property will be required to pay £192.15.

The following table shows the proportion of Council Tax charges in relation to a Band 'D' property:

  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)

Owing to a print formatting error the wording on your bill relating to the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Fire authority’s precepts have been shown the wrong way round.

The Mid Devon website has the correct wording and the correct financial amounts on all our 2017/18 Annual Bills.

We have taken professional and legal advice regarding this formatting error on the bill and were told that as we have billed for the correct amount overall and that our website shows the correct individual amounts for each precepting authority then there is no need for a complete re-bill.

The amount you are required to pay for 2017/18 has not changed.

What services will we provide in 2017/18?

We'll continue to deliver a wide range of services for our residents despite continued cuts to our funding by Central Government, which have amounted to approximately £3.7m since 2010. Throughout 2017/18, we'll continue to support and stimulate more economic activity across the District, including the provision of additional private and social homes - this in part, will be facilitated by our soon-to-be-setup property company.

Changes made to our Waste Collection service over the past 18 months have increased our recycling rate by 4%, thus reducing the amount of landfill waste and associated treatment and disposal costs.

As part of the 2017/18 funding settlement, we've now received fixed funding from Central Government for four years (effective from 2016/17 through to 2019/20). This continues to reflect the Government’s Public Sector austerity programme and includes further funding cuts of approximately £0.5m.
