Council tax set to rise in Lincolnshire, Rutland, East Northamptonshire and North West Cambridgeshire in face of national funding shortfall
Lincolnshire county councillors have backed a 3.5 per cent council tax increase as part of the authority’s budget plans for 2020/21.
It means an average band D home in the county would be billed £1,337.58 for the services the council provides, such as adult social care, roads and education. This is a £45 rise on last year.
Meanwhile, Rutland’s draft budget proposes a 3.99 per cent increase. For an average band D property in Rutland, the bill would be £1,773 for the services Rutland County Council provides, an increase of £68 compared to last year.
