To consider the report of the Director of Resources (copy enclosed).

Additional documents:


The Council considered the report of the Director of Resources that required the Council to set the tax base for Council Tax by the 31 January in the financial year preceding that to which the tax base applies. The Council had to notify its tax base calculations to Essex County Council, Essex Fire Authority and the Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex and Parish / Town Councils by 31 January.


The Chairman advised the Council that he was bringing forward this item, originally item 12 on the agenda, and deferred to the Leader of the Council to present the report. The Leader drew Members’ attention to the appendices and noted that this was a pre-requisite for all local authorities under the Local Government Finance Act 1992. She then moved the recommendation in the report and it was duly seconded.


The Director of Resources reminded the Council that this was the Council Tax base not the Council Tax setting itself.  The Chairman then put the recommendation to the Council and it was agreed by assent.


RESOLVED that in accordance with the Local Authorities (Calculation of Tax Base) Regulations 2012 the amount calculated by Maldon District Council as its council tax base for the 2023 / 24 year shall be set at 25,892.3.


The Chairman then returned to Item 8 the Minute Book to deal with the remaining recommendations.
