Commons Allotment Charity Grants and Precept Grants 2022/2023 Budget

The Town Council has allocated its Commons Allotment Grant Funding (£5,825.00) as well as Precept Grant Funding (£25,000.00) for 2022/23. A full list can be viewed on the Town Council’s website.

As per last year, Members decided to keep a small pot of reserve grant funding to be made available during the period 1st April 2022 – 31st March 2023 for adhoc urgent requests for funding.

At the January Town Council Meeting Members agreed a budget for 2022/23.  The precept arrangements reflect an increase of 1.22% on the Town Council element of your council tax bill in respect of 1st April 2022 – 31st March 2023.

The increase of 1.22% equates to an increase of £1.03 per annum for a Band A property and £1.19 per annum for a Band B property compared to last year. (Town Council element of increase only). Full details of increases for all Bands will be available on the Council’s website in due course.
