Council tax precept in village to rise – but overall charge will fall
PUBLISHED: 16:00 12 January 2017
Yatton Parish Council has agreed to raise its council tax precept by three per cent during the next financial year – but the amount it receives from each household will go down.
The precept will rise to £200,850 in the 2017/18 financial year to cover a reduction in its council tax support grant from North Somerset Council.
However, as the number of council tax-paying households in Yatton has increased during the past financial year, the annual charge payable to the parish council for a band D property will fall from £74.40 to £74.06.
