Precept for 2022-23
Burwash Parish Council has agreed a precept of £105,792 for the financial year 2022-23. This money will be used to continue to fund projects including traffic calming measures, a grass cutting contract, a flower planting programme as well as new projects for this financial year to include allotments, investment in scoping increased work on cycle paths and other projects.
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 £105,792 divided by £1,255.20 = £84.28.
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.
