How your money is spent

Each year Calderdale Council is obliged to publish detailed information on the Council's spending and performance in relation to Council Tax. Previously you would have received this information in a booklet along with your annual Council tax bill. The government now allows Local Authorities to publish this information on our website to significantly reduce costs.
