**The 2% increase in the Adult Social Care and the 1.99% increase in the standard Council Tax is based on the total of the 2019/20 standard Council Tax and the 2019/20 Adult Social Care (£1,351.11 plus £102.39 = £1,453.50).

*The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has made an offer to adult social care authorities. ("Adult social care authorities" are local authorities which have functions under Part 1 of the Care Act 2014, namely county councils in England, district councils for an area in England for which there is no county council, London borough councils, the Common Council of the City of London and the Council of the Isles of Scilly.)

The offer is the option of an adult social care authority being able to charge an additional "precept" of up to 2% on its council tax for 2020/21 without holding a referendum, to assist the authority in meeting expenditure on adult social care. Further decisions to continue with the adult social care precept will be subject to the approval of the House of Commons and the Secretary of State.
