Annual Council Tax Rates

The Council Tax charge is partly based on the value of a property and partly on the number of adult residents. The property element and the person element each amount to 50 per cent of the charge.

There are discounts, reliefs and exemptions depending upon eligibility, as as well as Council Tax Support for people who are on a low income.

Apply for, or remove Exemption/Discount online via a My Erewash account. (opens in a new window)

The basic bill assumes that there are two adults resident in the property. If there are more than two, the charge is not increased, but if there are fewer than two, a discount can be granted.

This discount amounts to 25 per cent of the total charge, in other words, half of the personal element of the charge. You can also apply for, or remove Single Persons Discount using your My Erewash account.

The Council Tax Leaflet that is included with the Annual Statement has further information.

Property bands explained

All domestic properties are chargeable properties for the purposes of Council Tax and the amount of Council Tax payable depends on the valuation band into which the property has been placed. Each property has been banded based on its expected selling price as at April 1991.

Environment Agency Midlands Region The Council Tax (Demand Notices) (England) Regulations 2011 

The Environment Agency is a levying body for its Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Functions under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 and the Environment Agency (Levies) (England and Wales) Regulations 2011.

The Environment Agency has powers in respect of flood and coastal erosion risk management for 6,500 kilometres of main river and along tidal and sea defences in the area of the North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee. Money is spent on the construction of new flood defence schemes, the maintenance of the river system and existing flood defences together with the operation of a flood warning system and management of the risk of coastal erosion.

The financial details are: North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee 2020 -21: 000’s, 2021 - 22: 000’s Gross expenditure £92,022 £130,113. Levies raised £4,097 £4,179. Total council tax base 2,178, 2,163.

The majority of funding for flood defence comes directly from the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). However, under the new Partnership Funding rule not all schemes will attract full central funding.To provide local funding for local priorities and contributions for partnership funding the Regional Flood and Coastal Committees recommend through the Environment Agency a local levy.

A change in the gross budgeted expenditure between years reflects the programme of works for both capital and revenue needed by the Regional Flood and Coastal Committee to which you contribute. The total Local Levy raised by this committee has increased by 2.0% The total Local Levy raised has increased from £4,096,979 in 2020/21 to £4,178,918 for 2021/22.


If you are paid too much Council Tax Support, the overpayment can be recovered from yourself. Any overpayments will be added back to your Council Tax account. However if the overpayment is as a result of an official error, it may be deemed not recoverable. Like all decisions made by us, you have the right to appeal against it.
