SEDGEMOOR DISTRICT COUNCIL, in its capacity as a Billing Authority under the Local Government Finance Act 1992, at its meeting on 22 February 2021 resolved to set a COUNCIL TAX for the year ending 31 March 2022.
The Council Tax was set by reference to the number of properties within the District of Sedgemoor in the different valuation bands in the Inland Revenue's Valuation List compiled under the same Act. The level of Tax is expected to meet the precepts of Somerset County Council, the Avon and Somerset Police Crime Commissioner, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Authority, Sedgemoor District Council and, where appropriate, town councils, parish councils and parish meetings.
The various precepts are converted to an amount of Council Tax for a property in band D as follows:
* Somerset County Council
Somerset County Council - Adult Social Care Avon & Somerset Police Crime Commissioner Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Authority
* Sedgemoor District Council total
'includes 1.25% increase for contribution towards the Somerset Rivers Authority (SRA) The band D amounts for parts of the Sedgemoor District to be added to the above total for parish precepts are:
