Council tax

About council tax

imageWhen you pay your council tax bill, you are helping to fund services provided by Staffordshire County Council, Staffordshire Police Authority, Staffordshire Fire Authority, local parish councils, and us. 

We only keep around 10% which means you pay Lichfield District Council about £2.87 a week for the services we deliver to you - such as emptying your bins, cleaning local roads and running leisure centres and parks.

The exact amount you will pay also depends on the your property valuation band - the lower the band you are in, the less you will pay and vice versa. What you pay is also affected by the parish you live in, as the amount each parish council charges differs.

Our table of council tax charges shows exactly how much you'll pay.
