This is how much more council tax you will have to pay by borough in Surrey in 2020/21

Published by Local Democracy Reporter Rebecca Curley at 6:00am 15th February 2020.

People in Woking are set to pay more council tax than other taxpayers across Surrey in 2020/21.

The council tax bill for a Band D property in Woking will be £75.87 higher than the lowest bill, in its neighbouring borough of Runnymede. 

However, Elmbridge has more Band D properties and will be giving the most of all the 11 boroughs and districts to Surrey County Council. 

Including the precepts for Surrey County Council (SCC) and Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner (SPCC), the bill for a Band D non-parished property in Woking will total £2,027.49 for 2020/21. 

This will go towards an investment programme set out by Woking Borough Council, who want to spend £404million in 2020/21 and around £147m on housing.

Council tax rises are all in the process of being proposed and approved by councillors across the 11 boroughs and districts. 

Figures for Spelthorne have not yet been released. 

SCC approved its 3.99% increase last week and Surrey Police and Crime panel has approved the police precept of 3.84%.

The bulk of a council tax bill goes to SCC, which has set its share at £1,511.46 for a Band D property. The Surrey PCC precept has been set at £270.57. 

Borough and district bills range from £169.59 in Runnymede and £245.46 in Woking. 

There are 506,308 Band D properties in Surrey.

Around £769.5m is expected to be collected by Surrey County Council from all 11 boroughs and districts and bands. 

Elmbridge has the highest amount of Band D properties and will also be expected to provide the highest payment amount of tax to Surrey because of the number of houses it has in the higher band brackets. 

Despite having the highest amount of Band D tax bill, Woking will only provide the fifth highest in council tax to the county. 

Here is a full breakdown of how much you could be expected to pay in 2020/21 once all figures are approved: 

*Proposed figures are based on non-parished Band D properties
