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.

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

  • 75p - Norfolk County Council
  • 13p - Norfolk Police Authority 
  • 9p - 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?

The range of services provided by North Norfolk District Council, Parish Councils and Town Councils includes refuse collection, housing advice, benefits, recycling, planning services, street cleaning, business growth, parks and leisure facilities, coast and flood defences and much, much more.

Council expenditure is split into two main types: capital and revenue.

Capital expenditure is for one-off projects such as major improvement works, initiatives or infrastructure procurement. The following table shows the Capital Projects that the Council is committed to funding
