Your Council Tax 2024-2025 explained

The Council Tax you pay is not calculated based on which services you receive or use. It contributes around a quarter to the budget the Council needs to provide vital services to residents and businesses. 

The council’s funding comes from two main sources:

  • Welsh Government grants
  • Council Tax

This is how the 2024-25 budget is made up:  

Council budget 2024/25 Council budget 2024/25

Council Tax levels 2024-25

The Council Tax increase for this year is 7.9%.

That’s an average increase of £2.25 per week, made up as follows:

  • payment to Mid & West Wales Fire and Rescue Service - 1.24%
  • subsidy to Celtic Leisure to run indoor leisure services - 2.00%
  • contribution to the cost of running council services - 4.66%
