Council Tax Spend on Potholes


“How much council tax goes to pot holes specifically?”


Council tax is one of a number of funding streams available to the County Council and it is, therefore, not possible to break this down to specific service expenditure. Detail of the budget book is available on our website through the February Cabinet report (link provided below)

However, we can confirm that for the financial year 2017/18 it was estimated that £3.42 million was spent on filling safety defect potholes.
