Council Tax to rise by 1.5%

THE EAST RIDING OF YORKSHIRE COUNCIL has set a budget for the next financial year (from 1st April 2110 to 31st March 2011) of £269 million, which requires a council tax at Band D of £1,212.20, an increase of £17.91 or 1.5 per cent.

The council tax increase is the lowest ever set by the East Riding Council and will mean that the increase for an average household will be less than £16 per year.

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council council tax figures for 2010/11 are set out below (2009/10 in brackets)  to which needs to be added the precept requirements of the Humberside Police and Fire authorities, town/parish council precepts and any special expenses.  The Police and Fire precepts are due to be set in the next few days.  These will be reported to a meeting of the Council on 24 February when the final council tax resolution will be approved.

Band A        £808.13                            (£796.19)
