What does council tax pay for?


Find out how we use the money we raise from council tax.

All of our services, from emptying your bin to protecting vulnerable children are paid for by money we receive in three ways:

  • Council tax and business rates
  • Grants from central government
  • Money we generate ourselves

To find out more about the range of services we provide, see our About Us page.
