Cost of living: Cambridgeshire council tax hike – how much you’ll pay from today

Council tax bills are set to rise for residents of Cambridgeshire today (April 1) as the country enters a new financial year. Money raised through council tax is split between county council, district and town councils, police, fire and parish councils, with each authority deciding whether its share of the tax should be increased .

Most have increased council tax, but East Cambridgeshire District Council and Fenland District Council have decided not to increase their shares. Residents of these districts will see their bill increase, as other authorities have increased the council tax share.

Cambridgeshire County Council has approved a 4.99 per cent increase in its council tax share which will see members of a Band C household pay £62.08 more to the county council per year. The county council said the increase was necessary to protect essential services.
