**The 3.00% increase in the Adult Social Care and the 1.99% increase in the standard Council Tax is based on the total of the 2021/22 standard Council Tax and the 2021/22 Adult Social Care (£1,410.07 plus £139.01 = £1,549.08).

*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 was the option of an adult social care authority being able to charge an additional "precept" on its council tax without holding a referendum, to assist the authority in meeting its expenditure on adult social care from the financial year 2016-17. It was originally made in respect of the financial years up to and including 2019-20. If the Secretary of State chooses to renew this offer in respect of a particular financial year, this is subject to the approval of the House of Commons."

On 17 December 2020, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government confirmed that Councils would be able to charge a further 3% in 2021/22 with the option to defer part or all of their ASC precept for use in 2022-23. This was subsequently debated and approved in the House of Commons on 10 February 2021.

Subsequently on 16 December 2021, the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities Michael Gove MP, set out the Provisional Local Government Finance Settlement for 2022-23 in the form of a Written Ministerial Statement. This proposed a package of referendum principles for 2022/ 23 including an Adult Social Care Precept of 1%, for all authorities responsible for ASC, plus the ability to add up to an additional 3% of unused ASC Precept from 2021/22. A further Written Ministerial Statement was subsequently presented to the House of Commons on 7 February 2022 confirming these parameters.
