RESIDENTS of Henley and South Oxfordshire will pay about £25 a year more in council tax from April 1.

Homeowners in a typical Band D property will be charged £1,570, a 1.7 per cent increase on last year.

Henley Town Council has increased its share of the tax by 2.2 per cent to £87 a year.

Oxfordshire County Council is to raise its share by 1.99 per cent to £1,208.41.

However, South Oxfordshire District Council is cutting its share of the tax by 2.5 per cent for the third year in a row and will now charge £114.68. It is the only district council in Oxfordshire lowering its rate.
