Planned Spending and Your Council Tax

How council tax is spent

The chart below shows how your annual council tax bill is divided across different local organisations.

Council Tax chart 2014/15

The amount of council tax you pay depends on how much the organisations above need to spend to deliver services in the area, and how much money they get from elsewhere. The amount you have to pay also depends on which valuation band your home is in.

This year (2014/2015) Ribble Valley Borough Council's budget will see a freeze in council tax for the fifth year running.

Each parish or town council within the borough can request a share of council tax for the local services provided by them. A table of council tax charges by parish for 2014/2015 is available for download.

You can also download information about how each organisation uses their share of council tax:

Every year we send out a guide to how your council tax is spent with your council tax bill and provide information on the different ways to pay your council tax. For more information see our council tax pages.
