The Brixworth Parish Council has set its budget for 2019/2020. The total expenditure for the year is £183,680 with £163,620 of this coming from the ‘precept’.
The Parish Council has the right to raise this money via the Council Tax process and the ‘Brixworth Precept’ is shown on your itemised Council Tax Bill.
The Parish Council uses it money to maintain its parks & recreation grounds, grass cutting, community grants, some street lighting and litter picking as well as playing its part in the structure of local democracy. In addition to the precept the Parish Council also has money set aside for special projects.
The new precept has increased this year by approximately 4 pence per week on band D properties.
