Council tax: How much will you pay?

RESIDENTS in Brading will pay the most council tax on the Isle of Wight in the coming year, while Newchurch homeowners will pay the least.

The Isle of Wight Council agreed last night to raise its part of the council tax by 1.99 per cent, in addition to a 1.99 per cent increase in the police precept and rises by parish and town councils.

Those figures have now been released and are published below, allowing Islanders to see exactly how much they will be paying next year.

Residents of Band D properties in Brading will pay £1,551.44 while in Newchurch the council tax bill for a Band D property will be £1486.19.

The Independent-led authority hopes town and parish councils will take on some of the services it can no longer afford to run, in light of the need to save £28 million due to government funding cuts.

We have produced a chart below to show how much town and parish councils have increased or decreased their precepts for the coming year.
