We have increased our share of council tax by 2.99% for 2018-2019.

Councillors met on Wednesday 21 February 2018 and agreed the rise, which works out as a £4.97 increase for Band D households, equating to 9.5 pence per week.

With a budget requirement of £12.285m for next year, the extra £106,710 raised from this increase will help us continue to deliver good quality and efficient services such as leisure, waste and recycling and business growth and develop our partnership working to get best value from our services.

We have managed reductions in government grants since 2010 and need to find a funding shortfall of £1.183m up until 2022.

Council Leader, Councillor Ann Syrett said, “The decision has not been taken lightly and we have had some lengthy debates about it. Tough decisions have got to be made, but we have financial plans in place that show we are planning for the future, that we are a responsible Council and that we will continue to do our best to protect jobs and services.

“Since the austerity measures were introduced, we have taken a pro-active and well-managed approach of investing in our services to maximise income. Our Go! Active leisure facility, B@Home council house building programme and extension to the Tangent Business Hub are just three prime examples of where we invest in schemes so we can reap the long-term benefits.”

We are the billing authority, but only receive around 10pence of every pound of Council Tax collected, with the remaining 90pence going to the County Council, the Police and Fire authorities, Town and Parish Councils.
