Which councils are increasing council tax? What you need to know about the 5% increase

Three-quarters of councils are increasing council tax by 4.99% from April, adding an average of £100 a year to bills. The increase is unwelcome news to many as the cost of living crisis continues to squeeze pockets with inflation hitting a 40-year high of 10.1%.

Research from the County Councils Network has revealed that 84 of 114 councils that published their budget proposal for 2023/24 were going forward with a maximum permitted 4.99% council tax rise.
