Annual report 2021/22

Changes to Council Tax this year

Your Council Tax bill is made up of a number of charges from different public organisations, including:

  • us, Swindon Borough Council
  • parish councils
  • the police
  • the fire service

The changes to each element are explained here.

General expenses

Also known as the ‘general fund’. This element has increased by 1.99%.

Adult social care

In recognition of the demand pressures facing local authorities, the Government has given councils an additional social care grant for 2021/22 and has allowed councils to raise extra Council Tax through the adult social care precept you will see on your bill.

This element has increased by 3%.

Fire service

The fire authority has increased its charge by just under 2%. For more information, visit the Wiltshire Fire Authority website.

Police and crime commissioner

Wiltshire Police has increased its charge by 6.94%. For more information, visit the PCC website.

Environment Agency

This tax is raised to pay for river and flood management services.  

Parish council precepts

Parish councils are democratic layers of local government. Each council decides individually how much tax they would like to charge households in their parish. The Council Tax charge for properties in different parishes vary as a result.
