Council Tax

It is the Police and Crime Commissioner’s responsibility to set the level of council tax you pay towards policing, known as the precept.

For the financial year 2020/21 – PCC David Munro’s proposal for a 3.8% increase was approved by Surrey’s Police and Crime Panel meaning the precept has been set at £270.57 for a Band D property.

This amounts to around an extra £10 on last year’s figure. Over 3,000 people took part in our public consultation survey which asked whether residents would support either a 2% inflationary increase or a 5% rise to add further officers and staff ( this was later amended to 3.8% following the delayed government policing settlement). Of those who responded, 60% were in support of the larger increase.
