"Even after the increase, the Hinckley and Bosworth council tax will still be the lowest in Leicestershire and among the lowest in the country.”

Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council have decided to increase their council tax charge for 2024/2025.

This means the average Band D council tax (including the Special Expense Area) for Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council will increase to a charge of £154.87 for the 2024/25 financial year.

This figure will be added to the charges by Leicestershire County Council, the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Fire Authority.

Councillor Keith Lynch, Executive Member for Finance, said “At this time when the country is suffering from a cost-of-living crisis and many individuals and families are suffering financial hardship, the last thing that this council wants to do is another increase in the council tax. However further reductions in government support grants have put yet more pressure on the council’s finances forcing us to raise the borough council tax by £5 a year (9.6p a week) to try to maintain our present level of public services. 

“However, I am pleased to be able to say that, even after the increase, the Hinckley and Bosworth council tax will still be the lowest in Leicestershire and among the lowest in the country.”

Residents can pay their bill annually, half-yearly or monthly. In a full year, the monthly instalments will normally be paid from April to January, however residents can also opt to pay their council tax over 12 instalments if they prefer.
