When you receive your council tax bill you will notice the following sentence at the bottom: "The council tax attributable to Lancashire County Council includes a precept to fund adult social care."
This is a statutory sentence prescribed by Government legislation and refers to the separate line on your bill relating to the Lancashire County Council Adult Social Care precept.
The other line relating to Lancashire County Council does not include the Adult Social Care precept; they are two distinct charges.
Please note: The government has said that the ASC precept must be shown as a separate charge on all council tax bills. The way that we work out this increase and show it on our council tax bills is prescribed by The Council Tax (Demand Notices) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2017.
By law any increases on your council tax bill must be shown to the nearest decimal point - which means that the 1.99% general expenditure increase must be shown as 2%.
