For the current financial year, the members of Staffordshire County Council approved an increase of 2.95% at their meeting on 14 February 2019. There is no adult social care precept increase this year.  

The percentage increase is calculated on the total Band D rate for 2018/19, which was £1,210.52. The table below sets out the split between the ASC part of the council tax and the ‘general’ part. This table shows the increase more clearly than the regulated format of the bills.
