Council Tax Bill 2016 - 2017

During 2016/17 we will spend about £11 million providing services to you, the majority of which will come from Council Tax and Business Rates rather than the Government.

The overall bill is made up of five separate parts. As well as us, you also pay Council Tax to Worcestershire County Council, West Mercia Police, Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority, and a parish or town council if they make a charge.

Each organisation works out how much they need to raise from Council Tax to run their services, then we’re responsible for sending out the bills to households and collecting the money.

Just eight pence in every pound you pay in Council Tax is kept by us to run everything from rubbish collections to supporting the local economy.

Wychavon collects the Council Tax on behalf of all of the organisations shown on the chart below.

Here's how much it costs us to provide some of the key services you rely on.*

Additional charge for Adult Social Care

This year adult social care authorities - in this area Worcestershire County Council - can increase their share of the Council Tax bill by an extra two per cent without holding a referendum. This is specifically to help fund the cost of adult social care and is on top of any increase, up to two per cent, introduced to fund the running of day-to-day services.
