What council tax pays for
Council tax is a property based tax collected by Bracknell Forest Council. The money collected in council tax goes towards funding council services such as:
- street lighting
- refuse collection
It is also spent on services provided by:
- the Police and Crime Commissioner for the Thames Valley
- the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service
- local town and parish councils
It is not a direct payment for services and you need to pay whether you use these services or not.
