Richmondshire District Councillors have approved an increase in their share of the council tax bill of 2.27 per cent.
The move equates to a £5 increase to £225 for an average Band D property.
Members of full council approved the rise last night.
The increase applies only to Richmondshire District Council’s tax requirement.
The average Band D property will pay £2,015.89 for the 2021/22 year once precepts are applied by North Yorkshire County Council, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Authority, the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire and local Town/Parish Councils.
That equates to £168 per month; £38.77 per week for a Band D property.
Richmondshire District Council is responsible for the billing and collection of council tax on behalf of all these authorities.
