Residents will be getting a refund on their council tax – after an admin' error.

Dorset Council will this week correct the mistake for Wool council taxpayers when it meets in Dorchester for the first time on Thursday.

But residents in the village will not be saving much – the average over payment works out at just £2.37 a year for a band D property.

Said Aidan Dunn, Dorset Council Executive Director for Corporate Development: “When council tax bills were sent out in March, Wool residents received a bill that detailed a slightly higher charge than the parish council had formally requested. For residents in Band D properties, this works out as £2.37 for the year.

“Revised bills will be issued following confirmation of the correct charge from Council on May 16th. Residents who have overpaid will be refunded.”
