Thousands of residents to see their council tax bills rise by as much as 10% – check how much you’ll pay now
But some authorities have been allowed to hike bills even more than this – in some cases, by as much as 15%.
Local authorities were previously only allowed to raise council tax by 2.99% – anything higher would have required a local vote.
The amount you’ll pay is determined by the local council and depends on which “band” the property you live in falls under.
Your home’s band is based on its value – the more expensive the property, the more council tax will be charged.
