Council Tax bills will rise by just under 5% in Wirral from April.

The increase is made up of a 2% increase ring-fenced for adult social care, with an additional 2.99% for other council services.

The local authority says £1 million will be focused on delivering improvements for residents, including new bins, improvements to parks and green spaces, and machinery for clearing gutters.

Here is how much you will pay for council services:

Band A: £1,258.82

Band B: £1,468.62

Band C: £1,678.42

Band D: £1,888.22

Band E: £2,307.83

Band F: £2,727.43

Band G: £3,147.04

Band H: £3,776.45

All bills will increase further when precepts for Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Authority and Liverpool City Region Combined Authority are added.
