London Borough of Haringey

London Borough of Haringey:

In General:
The London boroughs are administrative centres responsible for collecting local taxes (Council Tax and Business Rates) and then spending the funds received on local services. They are run by Borough Councils who are elected by borough residents on a four year cycle. The totals that they spend will depend on the rates of tax that they levy plus funds allocated from central government and other sources.

While many of the services (schools, roads, planning, rubbish collection and social services) are standard, levels of provision will vary according to the overall political will as expressed by the voters.

Your tax liability (as a resident) will be based on the council tax band of your home. These bands are set by Valuation Officers and there is scope for appeal. The rate bands are then used to determine the amounts of tax levied. So, while the bands will remain largely constant the levels of tax can go up and, in theory, down.

You may claim discounts or exemptions based on your circumstances. For example, as the only adult in a property you can get a 25% reduction on your bill. Other reductions are available for qualifying second adults and Council Tax Benefit claimants.

There is more information available at the HM Customs & Excise website.

London Borough of Haringey Comments

Surrounded by London's trendy boroughs; Camden, Islington and Hackney, Haringey in comparison keeps a low profile. Scared by the turmoil of the mid eighties and the Broadwater Farm riots, the borough is still a stark contrast of wealth and poverty. Geographically outer London, but very much inner London in character, nearly a third of Haringey's population is from ethnic minorities lending to a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Highgate, Muswell Hill and Crouch End to the west provide some of London's most sought after locations whilst in harsh contrast, Tottenham to the east boasts little more than grim council estates and high unemployment. Finsbury Park to the south has seen much redevelopment over the last decade, yet still has a few scruffy edges.
