The average Band D council tax set by local authorities in England for 2022/23 is £1,966

The average Band D council tax set by local authorities in England for 2022/23 is £1,966, up £67 or 3.5 per cent on the previous year, according to data published by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities.
