REVEALED: Hart’s council tax

Published at 11:29am 2nd March 2017. (Updated at 9:35am 17th March 2017)

Hart residents will see an increase in their council tax for 2017/2018. 

Hart District Council has increased the amount by just over nine pence per week, for a Band D property. 

This follows a rise of £5, or 9p per week, for 2016/2017, which was the first increase in six years.

What does this mean?

The increase means Hart residents will pay on average £161.84 for a Band D property, up from £156.84.

Added to Hampshire County Council’s Basic and Adult Social Care charges of £1079.98 and £53.12, as well as police (£165.46) and fire (£63.84) services, and the average amount for parish and town councils (£75.27), the overall average council tax charge for a Band D property will be £1,599.51 for 2017/2018.

What have Hart District Council said about it?

Cllr Ken Crookes, Cabinet Member for Finance and Economic Development at Hart District Council:

“This increase is in light of a significant reduction in Government revenue support grant (85%) and is necessary to protect the services that are important to residents. Our grant from the Government will be phased out altogether from 2018/19. We have made a number of efficiency savings through renegotiating existing contracts but over the next few years we will look for more opportunities to make savings and efficiencies whilst working hard to deliver better services at a lower cost.”
