How your Council tax is divided up

New Forest District Council collects all of the council tax you pay, and then we pass it on to other local public services - they each set their own amounts of council tax.

The average household in the New Forest (called a 'Band D' property) pays a total of  £1,693.78 council tax per year.

Your council tax is divided up as follows:

£1,200.96  Hampshire County Council (inc. Adult Social Care precept* ) to pay for services including roads and schools.

£177.46 Police (Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire)

£168.36 New Forest District Council

£81.26 Town/parish council (average)                                                                                    

£65.74 Fire (Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service)

*To help meet the cost of providing adult social care. The increase from April 2018 is worked out as a percentage of the total amount of council tax paid to Hampshire County Council in 2017/18

Note: Exact amounts will vary depending on which town or parish you live in and the banding of your property
