Village Precept



Note about our Village Precept*

Due to inflation, to increased costs and to the areas that require funding over the next 12 months the Parish Council has agreed to increase the precept for year 2022-23. Further detail will be published within the Council minutes.

There was no increase to the Village Precept in 2021/22.

Particular areas that will benefit from the precept over the coming year are street lighting, work to the village grass and verges and addressing the speeding issues. The Council is grateful to villagers who have highlighted areas that require attention.

*The precept is the money paid by residents (as part of Council Tax) to provide funds for necessary village maintenance, repairs and improvements, both routine (eg dog waste collection, and playing field maintenance), and exceptional (eg the extensive repairs to the New Walk footpath).
