Where is Bristol City Council?

Bristol City Council is the ruling civil council for the City of Bristol, formerly of the county of Avon, now its own principality. As such, it can be found in the city of Bristol, which is in the South-West of England, directly bordering Wales and above Somerset, and way off to the West of London. Bristol can be reached by air, flying into Bristol Airport, by sea, pulling into the city’s famous Docks, or by land, going down the motorways which lead into the city from any direction. It is important to note when following these instructions that Bristol City Council is in England, the Southernmost and primary nation in the United Kingdom, west of Europe.

How much is Bristol City Council Tax?

Council tax in Bristol is set based on a number of “bands” – that is, classifications of the amount of council tax that must be paid by certain sections of the city, based on the value of the properties there, the cost of that section of the city on the Council as a maintenance cost, and a number of other factors.

If you are wondering how much council tax you’ll need to pay if you have just moved to a new home in Bristol, you will first need to figure out which band you fall into. To do this, simply search “which council tax band Bristol” followed by your address. Official council services and numerous private websites exist to help you work out where on the scale you fall, and how much you can expect to pay.

Once you know which Bristol Council Tax Band you fall into, simply check the handy table below to find out how much Council Tax you will be charged per year.

What is Bristol City Council?

bristol-city-council-contact-numberBristol City Council is the ruling civic council responsible for organising the day-to-day running of the City of Bristol. This entails a lot of management of many small cogs in an unfathomably complex machine, particularly in the realms of city planning, building permission and construction, bins, waste management and recycling services, sewage and sanitation, protection from the elements in the form of salting roads, pretecting citizens against flooding or extreme heat, managing libraries and other civic centres of importance, such as museums and historic sites, and, some would say most importantly of all, ensuring parking and transport throughout the city is facilitated as effectively as it possibly can be.

They collect Council Tax in order to fund all of this, as every year, the roads must be maintained, stocks of vital supplies, such as rock salt and tar, must be replenished, buses must be subsidised, work must be undertaken, pest control must be performed, planning and building applications must be reviewed, the Mayor must be protected, the city’s leisure centres must be maintained and upgraded, further work must be taken on the management and expansion of the city’s libraries, its museums, and its protected historical sites. Without Bristol City Council, this vital work could not be performed, and the city would collapse into a state of disrepair and anarchy.
