Council Confirms 2.5% Council Tax Rise

Issued: 8 Feb 2007

In setting the Council Tax for 2007/8, The Highland Council has approved a rise of £28 at Band D, a 2.5 % increase. The following charges for 2007-2008 are: -

A £775.33; B £904.56; C £1,033.78; D £1,163 E £1,421.44; F £1,679.89; G £1,938.33; H £2,326.

Normally, the Council would be asked to consider an indicative tax charge for the following two financial years. As a result of the latest Spending Review outcome being delayed, the Council does not know the grant settlement for 2008/9 and 2009/2010 at this time and as a result is not being asked to declare an indicative tax increase for these two years.

At the same special meeting, the Council confirmed a rent increase of 4.9% (RPI + 1%) from 1 April, this year. This will see an average rent increase of £2.70, giving an average weekly rent of £57.90.
