Parish Council Precept Increase
Posted 10th April 2017
Comment on this
A recent Parish Council newsletter announced a 41.7% increase in precept charges for the 2017/18 financial year. As a result of the many objections to the increase, the Residents Association undertook to canvas the opinion of local residents. A questionnaire was delivered to Cheswick Green households asking residents to select one of three options.

1: Reject the 2017/18 increase of 41.7% and ask that any additional monies are refunded to me without delay. 108 (69%)

2: Accept the 2017/18 increase of 41.7%, but require the parish council tax to be returned to the 2016/17 level for the next financial year. 38 (24.5%)

3: Accept the 2017/18 increase of 41.7% which can be maintained at the discretion of the Parish Council. 9 (5.8%)

Total responses 155

With most residents who completed and returned the questionnaire rejecting the precept increase we have formally asked the Parish Council to cancel the increase. We will be in touch as matters progress.

The parish council has provided a portable defibrillator to be located outside the Village Hall. Read more
