Annual Spending

​​​​​We produce this newsletter every year to explain how council tax is calculated and how it is spent.

The newsletter includes information about:

  • what you will pay
  • council tax bands
  • the council's financial reserves – sums of money put aside for specific purposes and cash flow management
  • the council's revenue expenditure - the cost of the Councils expenditure on day-to-day services including running schools, caring for vulnerable people, collecting waste, maintaining highways and parks, and operating libraries and cultural venues
