Bleadon Parish Council Precept Setting

Posted on 18th July, 2022


The Parish (and Town) Council may charge a 'precept', an additional tax,

to fund itself and the activities they want to undertake on behalf of your community


Each parish must forecast how much they are going to need in the following financial year.


The parish council's Budget includes a number of things including planned expenditure, financial reserves and expected income. This is usually discussed in publicly held and minuted meetings, e.g. Finance Committees, and then agreed by Full Council, usually around January.


Bleadon Parish Council (BPC) 2022/23 Budget was set at £64,157, with some information in the associated Appendix (Jan22 Min 349.3)


The precept is calculated as part of the parish council’s budget. It fills the gap between the parish council’s planned expenditure and its estimated income. BPC's 2022/23 Precept was set at £54,000; an 8% increase on last year's £50K precept (Jan22 Min 349.4) Previous precepts shown here.
