Good news! For the eighth year running we're freezing our element of your bill.

Leicestershire County Council, Leicestershire and Rutland Fire Authority and the Police and Crime Commissioner have increased their elements of the charge by 1.99%. (shown as 2% on your Council Tax bill due to roundings)

In addition to the 1.99% increase levied by Leicestershire County Council, an increase of 2% to fund Adult Social Care is also included. For further information, click on the link to the County Council's financial information below.

Your bill explained

We collect your council tax - but only a small part of it is for our services (around 10%). 

The biggest part of your bill helps pay for Leicestershire County Council services - schools, roads, social services and more.  

On your bill you will also see charges from parish councils, Leicesteshire and Rutland Combined Fire Authority and the Police and Crime Commissioner.

The figure for town and parish councils will vary in other areas of the district. You will have on your bill a charge from your town or parish council, or special expenses.
