Cold Ashby Precept 2023-2024
Every year the Parish Council draws up budgets and calculates how much money it needs for the next financial year.
As a council we are aware that the services we provide for residents should be continued and are prudent on how we spend your money. The precept is the sum of money given to us to keep services running.
The financial position of the Council is sound and every care is taken when spending public funds. Our aim is to balance the budget and keep our element of your Council Tax to a minimum.
For the first time in many years Cold Ashby Parish Council has increased the precept due to rising costs, during the time Cold Ashby have held the precept the average precept in Northamptonshire has increased by over 40%. We are acutely aware that times are difficult and recognise our residents are facing challenges. We are reluctantly increasing the precept after exploring how we could stretch the current precept.
Below are some of the areas we spend the money we receive on:
- Street Lighting
- Cemetery upkeep
- General maintenance in the village
- Grass cutting and hedge maintenance
- Grants (e.g public events)
The audit documents for 2022-2023 are now available in the library section of the website ‘audit transparency’. All documents can be inspected 20th June 2023 to 1st August 2023 by appointment. To make an appointment please contact the clerk, Natalie Heath (email@example.com 07855 460306)
