Highest council tax bills are in East Midlands

BBC News

Typical council tax bills in England will rise by 4.7% in April, with Rutland and Nottingham residents paying the two highest rates in England.

The figure is based on Band D bills in homes occupied by two adults, with the annual bill being £2,043 in Rutland and £2,083 in Nottingham.

Newark and Sherwood in Nottinghamshire also makes the list with an annual bill of £2,024.

The levy on an average Band D property will go up by £78 to £1,750, the government said, in part owing to the cost of policing and adult social care.

Count councils network finance spokesman, Nick Rushton, who's also leader of Leicestershire County Council, said: "For a long time, county residents have borne the brunt of the historic underfunding of county areas.

"It cannot be fair that a resident in a terraced home in Hinckley in Leicestershire is paying double that of a resident in a multi-million-pound house in Westminster."
