How much is my Council Tax?

The amount of Council Tax you pay depends on which band your property is in, and whereabouts in the district you live. This is because different parish councils charge different amounts of Council Tax.

Uttlesford District Council collects your Council Tax and put it into a separate fund called the collection fund. This fund is then shared with Essex County Council, Essex Fire Authority, Police & Crime Commissioner for Essex and the parish and town councils.
