This is how much your council tax could cost next year – if City of York Council’s budget plans are agreed on Thursday.

Senior councillors want to increase council tax by 3.99 per cent from April – with 2 per cent of that rise going towards social care.

There will also be increases to the amount residents pay for police and fire services.


North Yorkshire’s Police Fire and Crime Commissioner confirmed the precept for police will rise by 3.9 per cent – the equivalent of £10 extra a year on a band D property.

And the fire service contribution will rise by 2 per cent.

When all three areas of council tax are combined, this is the amount you will be paying next year.

PropertyCost
Band A£1,147.86
Band B£1,339.18
Band C£1,530.48
Band D£1,721.79
Band E£2,104.40
Band F£2,487.03
Band G £2,869.65
Band H£3,443.58

Residents living in parished areas may also pay extra towards their parish council.
