Garden square levies

If you pay council tax for a property with access to, or surrounding, a garden square then a garden charge may be payable as part of your council tax. 

Garden charges are set annually by the Garden Committees.

They are collected as part of the council tax, so for example if you pay your Council tax in 10 monthly instalments, a tenth of the garden charge will automatically be included as part of your monthly Council tax instalment. Similarly, if you live alone and claim a single person discount of 25 per cent on your main Council Tax, this discount will also apply to your garden charge.

The table below shows the levies for 2013-14, for the 46 Garden Squares within the Royal Borough. It also shows the tax base for each Garden, the Garden Charge at Band D, and the total Council Tax at Band D including the Garden Charge.
