What is the Adult Social Care Precept?

As part of the 2017-18 provisional settlement, local authorities responsible for adult social care are allowed an additional 3% on the current Council Tax referendum threshold. The Adult Social Care Precept has been calculated by applying a 3% increase to the current average Band D total Council Tax rate.
