Parish bills

Rising despite squeeze

I refer to my blog dated 3 February 2017 notifying details for the last Parish Council meeting.

There are now UK-wide reports of bills having to increase to cover local costs of running parishes.

Parish council tax bills rise despite squeeze

'Villagers paying council tax are seeing their parish bills rise at a higher rate than the share they pay to larger authorities.'

It seems Nocton Parish Council are not on their own in having to announce an increase. Our Parish is facing a % age rise for 2017/18 of 16.3%.

Next Parish Council meeting: Tuesday 14 March 2017 at 7.00pm
