How much will council tax in the Cotswolds go up by

Households in the Cotswolds will pay more for their council tax from April, with the average Band D property paying £134.

Councillors approved the 3.88 per cent rise to Cotswold District Council’s share of council tax bills last night (February 26).

The increase means a Band D property will pay the equivalent of £5 more for local services every month from April 1.

The authority provides a wide range of services such a sheltered housing, off-street parking and waste and recycling collection.

Councillors also approved the district council’s budget, totalling £12milllion, and includes £70,000 for a climate change officer, and £20,000 to webcast council meetings and £60,000 to increase car parking spaces in Cirencester.

Also included is £850,000 over the next four years to review its housing blueprint, called a local plan, which sets out where homes are built in the district as the current one is ‘out of sync’, according to a council document.
