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.

At January's full council meeting the village precept was agreed for 2018/19 parish budget. It was agreed to keep it at last year's amount of £89k. The working budget has been agreed at £100.5k, with the shortfall to be made up from the general fund (unspent monies from previous year's precept).

Although there have been price rises across a number of areas the parish council felt it was important not to raise the precept this year because of the expectation of an increase from Northamptonshire County Council, whilst they are also making cuts.

While the Parish Council are able to maintain the precept for this year we anticipate next year's precept will need to be increased as a direct result of the increasing costs of some services provided to the parish.

Further details of the Parish Council's budgets can be obtained from the Parish Office.
