Where your council tax goes

Although NNDC is responsible for the collection of your council tax, only a small portion of this goes to the authority.Pie chart to show where your council tax is shared in 2019

Each £1 of council tax that we collect is split as follows:

  • 75p - Norfolk County Council
  • 14p - Norfolk Police Authority 
  • 8p - North Norfolk District Council
  • 3p - Town and Parish Councils

The money that is received by Norfolk County Council is to pay for services such as Education, Social Services, Waste Disposal, Libraries, Fire and Rescue.

The money that is received by the Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner goes towards providing policing across Norfolk.

How is your council tax spent by the District Council?
