How is my council tax spent?

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'll pay depends on your own Town or Parish Council’s precept, see How much will I pay? below.

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

What council services is it spent on?

The following chart shows how our gross spending plans for 2018/19 compare to 2017/18:


In 2018/19, we'll 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 £4 million since 2010. We'll continue to focus on major housing projects and commercial unit delivery and to this end, we've secured significant funding from Central Government to accelerate these programmes.

We have also just completed a large scale extension to Exe Valley Leisure Centre, which has seen a significant increase in both the gym and dance studio offering at the site.

Looking to the future, we know that we'll experience further funding reductions from Central Government, however we've been announced as a Devon wide 100% business rates pooling pilot, which will see an increase level of business rates kept locally.
