COUN­CIL tax bills, in­clud­ing parish coun­cil pre­cepts, have been con­firmed for the com­ing year. The new an­nual coun­cil tax charges for Kent County Coun­cil, Kent Po­lice and Kent Fire and Res­cue add up to £1,147.90 for a Band D home. Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil’s part of the bill for an av­er­age Band D home is £123.34, a rise of 4.85 per cent on last year. An av­er­age house­hold in Newen­den, which has the high­est parish pre­cept, can ex­pect to pay more than £50 more than one in Smeeth, which has the low­est.

County coun­cil bills to rise by al­most five per cent, see page 22.
