ASHFIELD DISTRICT COUNCIL

Ashfield District Council is set to freeze its council tax precept for 2019-20.

Residents in Band A properties in Annesley pay an additional £67.51 to the parish council, while Band D properties pay an additional £101.26.

Both parish councils have not announced if this will increase in the next budget.

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL

However, Nottinghamshire County Council is set to increase its precepts for council tax by almost four per cent.

For Band A properties in the county, people will pay an extra £37.75 a year towards the County Council precept, while Band D properties will pay an additional £56.63.

At present a Band A property pays Nottinghamshire County Council £946.29 per year, and a Band D property pays the county council £1,476.06 per year.

This includes £60.39 for adult social care in a Band A property and £90.58 in a Band D property.

It means the total paid in each of these bands will increase to £923.65 for Band A and £1,385.48 for a Band D property overall.

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE POLICE

The local police precept is also due to rise, with Paddy Tipping, Nottinghamshire police and crime commissioner, announcing it last week.

There will be a projected increase of up to 12 per cent, in order to fund “18 officers stationed outside the county”.

This rise will mean an increase from £195.39 to £219.33 per year for a Band D property from April.

Band A property precepts will rise from £130.26 to £146.22.

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE FIRE AND RESCUE SERVICE

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service is expected to raise its part of the council tax bill by 2.95 per cent.

It means the fire precept for Band D property will increase from £77.51 a year to £79.80.

For a Band A property it will go from £51.67 to £53.20.

The changes are yet to be formally approved, but they are expected to be voted through later this month.
