How Council Tax is calculated and spent

Parish council allocation

Under the arrangement for Council Tax, parish councils issue a precept to the borough council for their financial needs.

This is paid from our general fund. It is recovered by setting a Council Tax for each parish council which is included in the total amount billed to Council Tax payers within the parish concerned.

This table shows each parish precept for 2021-22 and 2022-23. It also shows the tax base (equivalent number of Band D properties) and consequent Band D tax.
