The Council has increased the Council Tax charge for 2023–24 by 4.99%.
This is an increase of 2.99% on the standard Council charge and a 2.0% increase on the Adult Social Care (ASC) Precept charge which is used to help fund the rising cost of social care services for older and disabled adults.
How we calculate the increases
The standard Council charge and the ASC Precept make up the ‘Total Council Charge.’ It is this overall charge that is used to work out both increases for 2023–24.
The Total Council Charge for 2022–23 was £1,554.39 for a Band D property.
The £1,554.398 was made up of the standard Council charge for 2022–23 of £1,369.97 plus an ASC Precept of £184.42
Standard Council charge increase - 2.99%
Firstly, we multiply the Total Council Charge for 2022-23 by 2.99%.
£1,554.39 x 2.99% = £46.42
We then add that increase to the 2022-23 standard Council charge.
£1,369.97 + £46.42 = £1,416.39
ASC Precept charge increase - 2.0%
Firstly, we multiply the Total Council Tax Charge for 2022-23 by 2.0%
£1,554.39 x 2.0% = £31.07
We then add that increase to the 2022-23 ASC Precept charge
£184.42 + £31.07 = £215.49
Total Council charge for 2023 - 24
The Total Council charge for 2023/24 is the new standard Council charge (£1,416.39) plus the new ASC Precept charge (£215.49) which equals £1,631.88.
