SEDGEMOOR DISTRICT COUNCIL
SEDGEMOOR DISTRICT COUNCIL, in its capacity as a Billing Authority under the Local Government Finance Act 1992, at its meeting on 20 February 2018 resolved to set a COUNCIL TAX for the year ending 31 March 2019.
The Council Tax was set by reference to the number of properties within the District of

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

Avon & Somerset Police Crime Commissioner £193.81
Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Authority £84.01
