Parish puts up its tax demand by two per cent


Heckington Parish Council has elected to increase its precept by two per cent.

That would equate to an increase in its share of the council tax for villagers of 20p a month.

At the council’s January 26 meeting, it was calculated income for the coming years from council tax, a Government grant and other fees was predicted to come to £77,782.

Outgoings would come to £71,665, but £6,000 extra is being budgeted for to meet the cost of replacing equipment and resurfacing the village green.
