Your Council Tax for 2019/20

Council TaxYour Council Tax goes to fund a huge range of vital services in the area. Each Council Tax bill lists the different organisations which provide your services and details their part of the entire bill.

Recently published rates for 2019/20 gives the expected increase and an idea of what it means for a Band D (average Council Tax range) property.

  • Sussex Police, 14.5% increase, £24 per year for Band D
  • West Sussex County Council, 4.99% increase, £66.04 per year for Band D
  • Mid Sussex District Council, 3.1% increase, £4.95 per year for Band D
  • with an additional section from your Town or Parish Council.

The slight raise in the Mid Sussex District Council element of Council Tax will enable us to support economic growth through the delivery of full-fibre gigabit connectivity and increase the number of electric vehicles charging points around our District.

We will secure infrastructure improvements to support housing growth, like GP surgeries, schools and community facilities. Further, we will invest in our playing pitches, playgrounds, parks and open spaces and in our leisure centres to make sure we have great facilities to help people stay fit and active.
