Council tax guide
The Council has now set the council tax for 2013-14, with 0% increase for the fifth year running.
The 'council tax' is a tax on domestic properties to help cover the costs of local services such as education, social information services, highways, environmental health and refuse collection. In addition, part of the council tax collected goes towards the costs of the Greater London Authority (GLA).
All domestic properties (ie. houses, flats, mobile homes and houseboat moorings) are subject to council tax.
