Will our Council Tax fall?

The Council Tax is made up of four elements:-

  • Northamptonshire County Council;
  • Kettering Borough Council;
  • Northamptonshire Police; and,
  • the Town Council (i.e. us).

The first three elements are the same across the county, that is, every household pays the same amount in each band. Those three authorities control how much that is.

The Town element is fixed by Desborough Town Council. The Council has agreed to consult widely on the budget for 2019/20. Only after the Council has determined its spending proposals can it agree a budget, and only THEN can it fix the amount to charge in Council Tax (known as a precept).
