How much you’ll pay in council tax in each area of Cambridgeshire in 2024-25





Council tax bills are set to rise for people across Cambridgeshire as the new financial year arrives in April.

The money collected through council tax is shared between the Combined Authority, the county council, district and city councils, police, fire, and parish/town councils.

Each authority has now decided whether it will increase its share of the council tax bill.

Most have raised council tax, but East Cambridgeshire District Council agreed to freeze its bill for the eleventh year, and Fenland District Council agreed to lower its council tax share for the second year.

People living in these two areas will still see their overall council tax bill go up, as other authorities agreed increases.

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority approved proposals to treble the mayoral precept, which was added to the council tax bill for the first time last year.

The mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, Dr Nik Johnson, said the increase – of £24 from £12 to £36 for an ‘average’ Band D household - was a price worth paying to fund new bus services and ensure people in the region were not ‘left behind’.

But it comes on top of Cambridgeshire County Council’s maximum 4.99 per cent increase to its share of the council tax bill, which includes a two per cent increase dedicated towards funding adult social care services.

The rise will see a Band D household pay £76.95 more a year to the authority.

The deputy leader of the authority, Cllr Elisa Meschini, said the increase was “difficult” to propose, but said without the £17.5million it raised the county council would not be able to continue to provide services for people most in need.

The police precept, meanwhile, will rise 4.8 per cent, while the fire authority precept will go up by 2.93 per cent.

Here is a breakdown of how much people will pay in council tax across Cambridgeshire, excluding the parish council/town council precepts.
