Minutes of Meeting where Precept and Budget were set 

The Parish Council finances its activities from part of the council tax paid by households in the parish. Winscombe and Sandford Parish Council has set its precept (the amount of money it raises from council tax payers) for the current financial year (April 2022 to March 2023) from £155,000 to £174,000 and would mean a Local Council Element of Headline Council Tax per D Band property increase from £73.33 to £80.25 which was equivalent to a 9.4% increase rise per ‘D’ band property on the current financial year.
