Where your Council Tax goes

Your council tax bill is split between this council, Derbyshire County Council, Derbyshire Police and Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Authority.

High Peak Borough Council (HPBC), Derbyshire County Council, Derbyshire Police Authority and Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Authority together deliver most of the local services in your area.

If you live in an area with a parish council, it too provides some local services. Please go to 'How Much You Pay' for more information.

The council tax you pay is collected by ourselves (High Peak Borough Council) on behalf of all the above authorities. The total amount is then divided between these authorities.

The table below shows how your council tax is distributed:

     County    Borough   Police     Fire       Total         

Read Council tax leaflet for Derbyshire County Council 2018 - 2019 [326KB]  for a full breakdown of their council tax budget information.
Please go to the  Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Authority's website or Derbyshire Police Constabulary website for their budget information.

Some money is also paid to the Environment Agency in the form of a 'precept'.  This is included in your Council Tax bill. [12KB]
