For the Council to approve the Council Tax Base for 2019/20.


Council received a report on the Council Tax base for 2019/20.

The Council Tax base was the measure of the relative taxable capacity of each of the three different tax-raising areas of the Borough (the Borough as a whole, the Parish Council area and the Town Council area). It had to be determined before 31st January each year and reported to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

The report set out relevant statutory powers, background, information on the Council Tax base calculation, and the collection rate. The report also set out options, legal, financial and equalities implications, risk management considerations, the position on consultation and policy framework factors.

The report was introduced by the Executive Member for Finance (Councillor T. Schofield) who moved the Recommendation set out. This was seconded by Councillor V.H. Lewanski whereupon it was

RESOLVED that in accordance with the Local Authorities (Calculation of Tax Base) Regulations 1992, the Council Tax base for 2019/20 for each of the Council’s areas shall be as follows:
