The Precept is the element of your Council Tax that is paid to East Hunsbury Parish Council.
Every year, the Parish Council agrees a budget to deliver services for the next Financial Year. Our precept demand is then submitted to Northampton Borough Council (NBC), who co-ordinate the demands from other services and determine the Council Tax rate to be paid for the new financial year.
The Resources Committee consider the draft budget carefully before making a recommendation to Full Council. This year the Committee have had to think about the ongoing impact of Covid-19, as well as the impact of Local Government Reorganisation and the transfer of assets from Northampton Borough Council to the parish. The transfer of assets includes Blacky More Community Centre, and many of the parks and open spaces in East Hunsbury. We will be pleased to take these assets on to ensure that they are maintained to a high standard for the residents of the parish. The Committee have recognised that there will be immediate and ongoing costs in doing so, and this is reflected in the budget.
For the year 2021/22 the Parish Council has agreed a total budget expenditure of £300,602, although it has demanded a precept of £205,000 with the balance coming from any income received and general reserve funds.
Using these figures, a property in Band D will pay £59.29 towards the precept - that's just over 16 pence a day.
