Parish council votes to freeze village tax requirement

PUBLISHED: 15:10 21 February 2017 | UPDATED: 15:10 21 February 2017


A village parish council will not change its tax precept for the next year.

Kingston Seymour Parish Council approved the freeze earlier this month.

The precept is the amount collected by the parish council through council tax payments to North Somerset Council during the financial year.

The news means people living in a band D property will continue to pay £59.54 to the parish during the 2017-18 financial year.

However, taxpayers will see an overall rise with North Somerset Council and Avon and Somerset Constabulary set to raise their requirements.
