3.9% increase in Council Tax next year likely

Powys County Council’s Cabinet are set to discuss a possible 3.9% increase in Council Tax as part of the 2021-2022 budget.

Powys County Council’s Cabinet are set to discuss a possible 3.9% increase in Council Tax as part of the 2021-2022 budget.

As part of their Cabinet meeting, held on the 26th January 2021, the Council’s Cabinet are set to discuss the draft 2021-222 budget and financial plans.

As part of these discussions, it is indicated that a possible 3.9% increase on Council Tax would be needed to fund the budget. This follows a better than expected settlement from Welsh Government.

As can be seen the balancing of the Council’s 2021-22 budget is dependent upon a 3.9% increase in the Council Tax in 2021-22, generating £3.33 million and £285,000 delivered through changes to the tax base.

Paragraph 3.52, Draft Medium-Term Financial Strategy 2021-2026 and Draft 2021-22 Budget and Capital Programme for 2021-2031 (Item 4)
