How our Council Tax requirement is calculated

We estimate the future cost of our services and the degree to which it is offset by income that will be generated by the fees and charges which apply for certain activities.

The net budget requirement of £12,527,600 for 2018 to 2019 is to be met from:

  • retained Non Domestic Rates of £3,440,500
  • Government grants of £433,500
  • offset by a collection fund surplus of £24,500
  • income from Council Tax payers of £8,629,100

Our budget takes account of inflation and changes in its fees and charges together with identified trends in actual expenditure and income levels. Net expenditure on services has decreased by £724,000. In addition, the level of central government support through Revenue Support and other general grants has reduced by £279,000. The council has approved a £5 (Band D equivalent) increase in Council Tax as part of setting a balanced budget.
