Council tax bills in Gloucestershire are set to be hiked from April – here’s by how much and in which district.

The last district authorities in the county signed off their 2021/22 budget this week, meaning every home in Gloucestershire will have their council tax bills raised from April 1.

Gloucester City and Stroud District Councils finalised their balance sheets on Thursday, and followed Tewkesbury, Forest of Dean, Cotswold and Cheltenham councils which all set their levels earlier this month.

All district councils, Gloucestershire County Council and the Police and Crime Commissioner raised their share of the council tax bill to pay for the services they provide.

This means that, aside from parish-level precepts, it is now clear how much each area of the county will pay as of April.

How is council tax set?

Council Tax is split between the county council, the Police and Crime Commissioner, the six district and borough councils in the county and the dozens of smaller town and parish councils.

Each authority draws up a budget which sets out how much they need from every household in their area to maintain the services they provide.

The district or borough council your home falls under is responsible for collecting your Council Tax, but only keeps its share of the bill.

Homes fall into one of eight different tax bands, A-H, depending on their value. Band D is taken as the average, with Band A homes paying the least and Band H homes the most.
