In fact, for the same overall tax take spread over the same number of properties, the charge in each band is very dependent on the distribution of properties between the bands. If an area contains a greater proportion of more expensive properties, then the charge in each band necessary to raise the required total is reduced.
It seems very likely that areas run by Conservative councils tend to have more homes in the higher charge bands. A comparison between band charges may therefore have little relevance to council
