Parish Council Precept Budget for 2020/21
Many of you will be aware that all Parish and Town Councils are required to prepare their budgets for submission to the appropriate District Council. Bishopsteignton Parish Council agreed it’s 2020/21 budget at its full council meeting heldon the 20 January 2020.
The budget shows an increase of 6.95% compared with 2019/20. You will see this on your Council Tax bill for 2020/21 which you will receive from Teignbridge District Council during March. The Parish Council total increase on top of the 2019/20 precept is £3,952. To put this increase in context, for a Band D Council Tax payer this will be an additional £2.97 per annum.
The Parish Council will always try to keep any increase to a minimum. However, to deliver a good service, take on limited additional responsibilities and strive to improve our village environment, it is extremely difficult to limit any increase to the average inflation rate on our limited budget. We will always seek additional external funding opportunities to enhance services to the community wherever possible.
If there are any matters on the budget or indeed any other Parish Council services you wish to discuss, then I will be pleased for you to contact me.
