Who receives the council tax you pay?

Your council tax is split between 4 different authorities:

The money that AVDC receives goes towards services including:

  • cleaning services, eg refuse and recycling collections, street cleaning, removing abandoned cars, graffiti and litter
  • environmental services, eg food safety, air quality and noise pollution control
  • licensing services, eg alcohol, food and entertainment premises, taxis and street traders
  • planning and building control services
