Council Tax Bands and Charges in Christchurch 2020/21

Council Tax harmonisation

Historically, the amount of Council Tax you paid for your council services differed, based on whether you lived in Bournemouth, Christchurch or Poole.

To address this issue in a way that is fair to all residents, BCP Council and the Government has agreed a process known as Council Tax harmonisation. This means that, over an agreed period of time, the 3 Council Tax levels within the BCP Council area will become the same.

The process of Council Tax harmonisation for BCP Council is based on the following principles:

  • Council Tax levels levied by BCP Council will not exceed the maximum annual increase permitted by the Government.

  • Council Tax bills for Christchurch households will be frozen or reduced until the harmonised rate is achieved across the entire BCP Council area.
