How is my council tax spent?

Council tax is your contribution to the many services we provide such as schools, roads, libraries, meals in the home and rubbish collection.

The charge includes a payment to Brent Council, the Greater London Authority and also includes charges payable to the Police Authority and the Fire Service. 

Who sets the rate?

Every March, councillors agree a budget and then set the amount of money to be collected from council tax.
