Detail

These statistics published on 23 July 2014 have superseded those published on 26 March 2014. Minor revisions were made due to changes as a result of further validation work to clarify the treatment of parishes. The revisions affect the figures for 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 in table 6 but do not change any key points from the original release.

The key points from the latest release are:

  • the average Band D Council Tax set by local authorities in England for 2014 to 2015 will be £1,468, which is an increase of £12 or 0.9% on the 2013 to 2014 figure of £1,456

  • the average Band D Council Tax will be £1,296 in London (a decrease of £6 when compared with 2013 to 2014), £1,434 (+£13) in metropolitan areas, £1,502 (+£16) in unitary authority areas and £1,527 (+£17) in shire areas

  • the Council Tax requirement (excluding parish precepts) in 2014 to 2015 is £23.6 billion, £0.57 billion more than 2013 to 2014

  • parish precepts in 2014 to 2015 will total £389 million which is £22 million higher than in 2013 to 2014.

  • in 2014 to 2015, 251 out of 421 (60%) authorities will receive the council tax freeze grant - this is 6 fewer than 2013 to 2014; this varies by type of authority, from 14% of police authorities to 68% of shire districts and 100% in London

  • there will be a decrease in the average Council Tax for the London area of 0.4%

  • there will be an increase in the overall average Band D Council Tax for police and crime commissioners of 1.2%; if the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime in London is excluded this figure rises to 1.7%
