3. Council Tax Requirement

The Council must prepare a statutory calculation - the Council Tax Requirement. This is calculated by multiplying the Tax Base in an area (the number of Band D equivalent dwellings for Council Tax purposes) by Band D Council Tax. The Band D Council Tax figures are shown in a previous table whilst the Tax Base for each area is as follows:

Within this amount, £10.523m helps pay for Adult Social Care services. In total therefore, income generated by Council Tax for borough wide Council services has increased by £2.086m between years.
