The Precept is the element of your Council Tax that is paid to East Hunsbury Parish Council.

East Hunsbury Parish Council has a statutory duty to prepare a budget which forms the basis of our precept demand. West Northamptonshire Council collect the precept on our behalf through your Council Tax, together with the money they collect for other organisations to pay for services that will benefit the whole of West Northamptonshire such as Police and Fire Services. All of the different elements that make up your Council Tax will be shown on your bill, including the proportion of your bill that goes to the parish council.

The Resources Committee consider the draft budget carefully to ensure that it is realistic and meets the needs of the parish council, so that we can deliver services and events for East Hunsbury. This year the Committee were particularly mindful of the current economic situation and the financial pressures on the community, balanced against the increasing costs faced by the parish council.

For the year 2023/24 the Parish Council has agreed a total budget expenditure of £278,652, although it has demanded a precept of £225,500 with the balance coming from income received and general reserve funds.

Using these figures, a property in Band D will pay £65.23 towards the precept - that's around 18 pence a day.
