Precept

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

Every year, the Parish Council draws up budgets and calculates how much money is required for Deanshanger Parish Council for the next Financial Year. The Parish Council precept is submitted to South Northants District Council.

For the Parish of Deanshanger the precept has been set at £95k for the financial year 2020/21. This is an increase of 3.4%, an increase of £2.25 on a Band D property.

The budget set by the Parish Council has increased by 6.4% to £110.4k, and this is the amount we anticipate needing to spend during the year. The difference between the budget and precept of £15.4k will be covered by monies from the Parish Council General Fund (monies already received from previous precept payments).

The budget increase is due to several factors. We have an increase cost for Street Lighting, however, we have negotiated a contract with a new supplier; the adoption of land from Persimmon has given us more bins to empty and land to maintain, although the grass cutting and hedge trimming is mitigated this year by a payment from Persimmon; the need for more maintenance of our trees and green spaces; insurance of our village vehicle.

However, we have maintained our level of grant monies available to organisations with in the parish at £9k, having supported Deanshanger Sports and Social Club fireworks and the new Youth Cafe during 2019/20.
