Precept for 2021-22
Burwash Parish Council has a precept of £88,160 for the financial year 2021-22. This money will be used to continue to fund projects including traffic calming measures, a grass cutting contract, a flower planting programme and other local schemes.
The precept is calculated by looking at the cost of projects and initiatives for the coming year. The calculation is precept divided by council tax base = Band D equivalent cost.
The Burwash Parish calculation is £88,160 divided by £1,246.40 = £70.73.
The Council is always exploring cost-effective methods for delivering services and projects within the Parish and will continue to do so. Click here to see the Financial Regulations under which the Parish Council operates
Each year the Parish Council works with the RFO to develop a budget for the key projects and overheads and to ensure that the expenditure does not go over the precept. The Council also maintains a general reserve as well as Earmarked Reserves designed to cover one-off projects.
