How your council tax is divided up

New Forest District Council collects all of the council tax you pay, and then we pass it on to other local public services - they each set their own amounts of council tax.

The average household in the New Forest (called a 'Band D' property) pays a total of  £1,765.32 council tax per year.

Your council tax is divided up as follows:

£1,149.77  Hampshire County Council (excl. Adult Social Care precept ) to pay for services including roads and schools.   hants.gov.uk/counciltax

£87.10 Hampshire County Council Adult Social Care precept

£67.71 Hampshire Fire and Rescue Authority hantsfire.gov.uk

£173.36 New Forest District Council

£201.46 Police (Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire)  hampshire-pcc.gov.uk

£85.92 Town/parish council (average)                                                                                    

Note: Exact amounts will vary depending on which town or parish you live in and the banding of your property
