This is how much council tax is going up by where you live in Lincolnshire

Residents in Greater Lincolnshire are set to pay an average of £80 extra in council tax from April this year.

It comes as the ten local authorities in the region are set to increase council tax for 2018/19 with residents in Lincolnshire paying on average £75 more and those in Northern Lincolnshire £87 extra per year for a band D property.

Across the country, council tax payers are expected to pay on average £107 more after new freedoms to increase council tax were given the green light by Communities Secretary Sajid Javid.

Under the plans, councils can now increase council tax by as much as 5.99% without the need for a referendum.
