Warndon Parish Council sets budget

First published in News Worcester News: Sarah Hickinbotham by

A PARISH council in Worcester will raise its part of the council tax bill by 2.5 per cent.

Members of Warndon Parish Council voted last night to increase its budget from £81,007 in 2012/13 to £83,032 in 2013/14.

Last year, the council courted controversy when it decided to hike up its precept by 16 per cent - an average rise of £2.50 a year for each household.

It had initially agreed a four per cent budget increase, but upped its proposal after fears the Government could impose a cap on parish councils.

This is a very interesting story, but incomplete. What was the change in the council tax base between last year and the one in question? We wanted to retain the same precept in money terms in our parish, but to do this would have resulted in an 8% rise because our base had gone down because of single person discounts, council tax allowances etc. Nothing is as simple as it seems.
