How Council Tax is calculated
Everyone who pays Council Tax is contributing to the services we enjoy in South Lakeland.
However, the majority of the money collected goes towards services provided by Cumbria County Council and Cumbria Police.
Where your Council Tax goes
For evey £1 that you pay, your Council Tax is shared as follows:
- 74p to Cumbria County Council
- 13p to Cumbria Police and Crime Commissioner
- 11p to South Lakeland District Council
- 2p to Parish Councils
