For 2016/17 we have raised our element of the council tax bill by 4.36 per cent. For a Band D property that means it has gone up £4.47 a year to £107.09 - less than 9p a week. It is the first time we have increased our share of council tax in six years.
Your bill will also reflect increases by Leicestershire Police, Leicestershire County Council and the Fire Authority.
The annual council tax bills only have the capacity to display to one decimal place so increases will be rounded up, for example an increase of 1.99 will be rounded up to two per cent.
Details of all council tax bands in Charnwood are provided in the document below. Details of council tax banding for a specific property in Charnwood can be found by doing a search by address in our property search My Charnwood.

In basic terms the amount of council tax payable in respect of a property is calculated as follows:
- The total cost of providing the required local services is calculated
- This figure is then divided by the number of properties in the borough
- The result is adjusted to take account of the different council tax bands in which properties are placed
The actual calculation is obviously much more complex than this example. If you want more information on Council Tax calculations please contact the Council Tax office.
