Households across Greater Lincolnshire will have to tighten their purse strings ever so slightly over the next year to compensate for rises in council tax in the county.

Councils across the county are raising council tax by as much as almost 5% in some cases for the 2017-18 financial year.

Residents in Lincolnshire have their council tax divided between the county council, the district council, any parish or town councils, and the police and crime commissioner.

As unitary authorities, North and North East Lincolnshire Council collect and keep all their council tax, aside from precepts for the police and fire and rescue.

Councils with responsibility for adult social care are able to add an extra precept of 3% onto existing council tax.

The government has also allowed district councils to increase council tax by £5 for a Band D property for 2017-18.
