It's only gone up by £20 from £565 to £585 or by 3.5%
Council tax on the other hand gone up by 6% for me.

The worst thing is in spite of paying them, I haven't had an actual tax disc sent to me for years

Are you really surprised prices on Government stuff is going up? The last year look at what has been spent tackling Covid and all the furlough payments etc.....

There will be more hikes in other areas to come
