Small tax increase for Welwyn Hatfield residents
MOST residents in Welwyn Hatfield will face a council tax increase of just under �7 a year.
Only Hertfordshire Police Authority and various parish councils within Welwyn Hatfield upped their precepts for 2010/11.
Both Welwyn Hatfield Council, which claims 13p of every pound paid, and Hertfordshire County Council, which takes 75p, agreed to freeze its share of the tax this year.
Parish and town councils take a two per cent share, and although North Mymms, Woolmer Green, Essendon and Northaw and Cuffley all agreed a zero per cent rise, Hatfield Town Council and Welwyn Parish Council both increased theirs slightly.
Hatfield Town Council increased its precept by 1.019 per cent – equivalent to an extra 70p a year for a Band D property.

Taking all parish precepts into account, the average Band D property tax bill in Welwyn Hatfield will be �1,498.28 – up from last year by �6.39.
