A-Z of Services

What does my Council Tax pay for?

Most of the money for providing services to you comes from central government and other grants. In Wyre Forest, just under £6 million is collected through Council Tax.

We collect your Council Tax but most of it goes to other organisations. We get just 12p in every pound.
