A council spokesman said: “East Staffordshire Borough Council collects council tax on behalf of itself, Staffordshire County Council, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, Staffordshire office of the police and crime commissioner and the parish councils within East Staffordshire.

“Each year those organisations set their council tax charges for the new financial year. Charges can increase/stay the same/decrease, depending on the amount of council tax each organisation needs to fund the services it delivers.

“The council tax charge for the borough council, county council, fire and rescue service and the police and crime commissioner are the same for every property (depending on the council tax band of the property). However, individual parish councils, such Uttoxeter Town Council, will set their own charges which may differ to other parishes within the borough. Therefore, the council tax charge for one parish compared to another will be different in that respect.

“Further information about council tax and charges for 2014/15 can be found on our website www.eaststaffsbc.gov.uk”
