Council agrees district council tax increase of £6.90 for 2023/2024

Last night’s Council meeting agreed an increase of £6.90 a year for a Band D property in Tandridge District Council’s share of the council tax for 2023/2024. The meeting also agreed the Council’s budget for next year.

The Council’s share of Band D council tax will increase to £237.88, which is just over £4.50 a week and will help pay for a wide range of vital services like recycling and waste collections, parks and open spaces and supporting our most vulnerable residents.

Surrey County Council, which provides services including schools, adult social care, children services, roads, fire and rescue and libraries, together with the Office of the Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner, both increased their Band D level for 2023/2024.

Surrey County Council has agreed an overall council tax rise, including social care, of 2.99% in 2023/2024, while the Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner agreed an increase of 5.07%.

This year’s total band D council tax will be £2,223.53. This is an increase of 3.28%, which is divided among the different organisations as follows:





Tandridge District Council




Surrey County Council



2.99% including adult social care

Surrey Police & Crime Commissioner





This Band D figure does not include parish precepts, which will vary across the district.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Catherine Sayer, said: “Some of the extra money raised by this year’s council tax increase will be allocated to our new Cost of Living Fund, which we’ll use to help some residents in financial difficulties.

Like every other council, Tandridge is expected to become financially self-sufficient at a time when demand for services continues to increase. As we set our budget for this council, we must continue to strive to deliver services for our residents in an efficient and effective way. To help us with this, we are restructuring the way the Council operates to deliver savings and service improvements.”
