Charnwood to raise council tax by 9p a week Charnwood Borough Council is proposing to raise its share of council tax by 9p a week for a Band D property. The proposed increase would see the annual charge for an average Band D property rise £5 (4.27 per cent) to £122.09 from 1 April 2019. It is also being proposed to keep the Loughborough Special Rate, paid by residents of Loughborough and the equivalent of a parish precept in villages, at the same rate, £74.97. The Council’s cabinet will consider the draft budget plans on Thursday 14 February with its recommendation due to go before full council on Monday 25 February. Southfields councillor and Cabinet member Paul Mercer commented that “this is a reasonable proposal which ensures that we protect our frontline services yet Charnwood still has one of the lowest council tax rates in the United Kingdom. It is also significant that we are freezing the Loughborough Special Rate once again”. Charnwood Borough Council currently has the 23rd lowest council tax charge out of 201 district councils in the country. Council tax pays for a range of services provided Charnwood Borough Council, Leicestershire County Council, Leicestershire Police and Leicestershire Fire and Rescue and the parish council where you live (or Charnwood Borough Council for people in Loughborough). The Charnwood element accounts for less than 10 per cent of the total bill. ,
