Precepts on districts
|District||Council Tax Precept
The Government allowed those councils with Adult Social Care (ASC) responsibilities to introduce a 2% precept on Council Tax for the financial year 2016/2017. This recognised the increasing cost pressures upon councils in relation to provision of adult social care.
Cumbria County Council implemented the 2% ASC precept for 2016/2017. This has continued in the intervening period.
The Spending Review 2020 assumed and enabled councils to levy the precept in 2021/2022 at 3%, although this could be deferred in part or full until 2022/2023. Cumbria County Council implemented an ASC precept of 2% in 2021/2022 and deferred the remaining 1% to 2022/2023.
Cumbria County Council have included an ASC precept at 2%, in 2022/2023. This consists of the remaining 1% deferred from 2021/2022 and a further 1% increase that was confirmed in the Local Government Finance Settlement for 2022/2023.
There was no increase in the basic rate of Council Tax.
