2017/2018 Parish Precept

Published: 10 January 2017

East Peckham Parish Council has set its Parish Precept for 2017/2018 at £139,950 which will be an average charge of £109.38 per Council Tax Bill.
The budget for East Peckham Parish Council for the financial year 2017/2018 shows a fundamental change from previous years because of the way in which the cost of providing local services has altered. Many of the costs now included within the Precept were previously covered by grants from Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council which are being withdrawn. The effect of this can be seen by the increase in the Precept for 2017/2018. The loss in TMBC funding amounts to £20,000 or approximately £16.00 per annum on a Band D property. For this reason the financial year 2017/2018 cannot be directly compared to previous financial years.
