Council tax is set to rise an average of 3.5% across England today, adding to the soaring energy prices and National Insurance.

And if you were wondering exactly how much yours is set to increase, the government has published a full list of council tax levels for each local authority in England.

While each band has increased by different amounts, the average Band D property is seeing a rise of £67.

Meanwhile, the average Band A bill will rise to £1,310, Band B to £1,529 and Band C to £1,747 a year.

Band D is used for comparisons as it is in the middle of the range, while band A properties have the lowest value and band H have the highest in England.

According to the data published by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities, Northumberland now has the highest council tax in the country.

Here, a Band D property will pay around £1,988 per year.

On the other end of the scale, the cheapest area for council tax is Westminster in central London, where Band D households pay £866.

Some local authorities are also increasing taxes more than the 3.5%, including Cambridgeshire which is going up by 4.99% and East Sussex by 4.49%.

Out of 329 local authorities, council tax will be falling in four areas which are Mansfield, Selby, South Ribble and Wandsworth.

This data doesn’t take into consideration the £150 rebate that will be given to households in Bands A to D by the government.

While this was supposed to help with rising energy costs, it will now be used by most households to subsidise the rise in council tax.

The average 3.5% rise is actually below last year’s increase, which was 4.4%, and is also the lowest year-on-year rise since 2016.

You can search for your Council Tax band here on the government's website, or find it on last year's bill.

Here is the list in full, which shows the average council tax for a Band D property.
