To access this innovative tool, residents can simply visit https://allaboutnewtown.wales/my-council-tax-spend and choose their council tax band. The user-friendly interface ensures that anyone can easily navigate and explore the intricate details of their council tax expenditure.

The tool analyses the budgets of three public bodies which make up your council tax bill, offering an annual perspective on the allocation of funds for the upcoming financial year.

It is important to note that the figures provided are for illustrative purposes, showcasing the broad categories of expenditure rather than serving as a direct link between contributions and specific outlays.

The interactive tool sheds light on the distribution of funds among public bodies, providing residents with a comprehensive view of the areas that receive the most significant financial support. This includes vital services such as education, adult services, highways, transport, policing, open spaces and more.
