Explanation of the council tax increase 2019/2020

  • This year, we’ve agreed a safety-first Brexit budget.
  • Continued government austerity has reduced our funding by 59p in every pound since 2010.
  • Council tax will only rise in line with inflation - by 2.7 per cent.
  • Bills in H&F are the third lowest in the country.
  • *The government’s adult social care precept will add a further 2 per cent to bills – this will contribute extra funding for services for older and Disabled people.
  • We work hard to ensure everyone pays their fair share of council tax – we strive to improve our collection rates each year. The rates are currently at 97.5% of the total owed.
