Where your council tax goes

Your council tax helps to pay for a range of public services provided across Gloucestershire. Each household receives a bill and the amount each household pays depends on which property valuation band the home is in and any discounts or exemptions that apply.

There are 8 valuation bands which relate to the value of the property on 1 April 1991, with the value of new properties being assessed back to this date.

The council tax you pay goes towards three different areas (called precepts):

  • 12 per cent of the council tax we collect is kept by Cheltenham Borough Council (including parish councils)
  • 74 per cent of the council tax goes to Gloucestershire County Council
  • 14 per cent of the council tax goes to the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gloucestershire
