Council Tax 2016/17

The amount of money required by the Council (its budget requirement) for 2016/17 to carry out its functions and provide services is £11.565 million (£11.934 million in 2015/16).

A proportion of this is met by a grant from Central Government and Business Rates Retention with the balance being met from council taxpayers.

The table below provides an analysis of the funding of the budget requirement and illustrates how the charge of £147.72 for a Band D property is calculated.
