Herefordshire Council adopts tax precepts for 2017/18

Herefordshire Council has today adopted the total council tax precepts for all Herefordshire residents. As the billing authority, Herefordshire Council has a statutory duty to reflect the individual precepts set by each parish council, West Mercia Police and Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service in setting the overall council tax due from dwellings across the county.

The council accepted the precepts agreed by each parish council, West Mercia Police and Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service; required to support the delivery of services both locally and across the county. The overall impact of these precepts resulted in an average council tax bill for a band D dwelling of £1,702.24.

This includes the council’s own tax charge of £1,376.50 which was set on 3 February; a rise of 3.9% including an adult social care levy of 2% to support the rising costs of adult social care for Herefordshire’s ageing population.

Councillor Anthony Johnson, leader of Herefordshire Council, said:

“The council tax rise will allow Herefordshire Council, parish councils, fire and police authorities to continue to deliver their services at a local and county level.

“Herefordshire Council will continue to secure the best value for money when delivering statutory services which enable residents to live safe, healthy and independent lives.”
