Cabinet considered the head of finance’s report on the need to set the council tax base for 2023/24. This was required to calculate the amount of taxable resources to allow Council to set its council tax in February 2023. Oxfordshire County Council, Thames Valley Police and all parish councils within the district would also be informed of the tax base relevant to them.
Cabinet noted that this year a new parish had been created, that of Harwell East, covering the part of Great Western Park within the Vale. This had caused additional work; staff were thanked for this.
RECOMMENDED to Council to:
(a) approve the report of the head of finance for the calculation of the council’s tax base and the calculation of the tax base for each parish area for 2023/24;
(b) agree that, in accordance with The Local Authorities (Calculation of Council Tax Base) (England) Regulations 2012, the amount calculated by Vale of White Horse District Council as its council tax base for the year 2023/24 is 56,664.9; and
(c) agree that, in accordance with The Local Authorities (Calculation of Council Tax Base) (England) Regulations 2012, the amount calculated by Vale of White Horse District Council as the council tax base for the year 2023/24 for each parish be the amount shown against the name of that parish in Appendix A of the report of the head of finance to Cabinet on 2 December 2022.
