RESIDENTS are facing a hike in council tax – more if their property in one of the four highest value brackets.

There will be a three per cent rise across the board while revaluation has resulted in a further hike for bands E to H.

At the highest level, band H is increasing from £2,377.98 to £3000.42 while the lowest, band A, will rise to £816.44 — a £23.78 jump.
