The proposal is to maintain the budget with no precept increase. The budget has worked well this year and we now have achieved our reserves policy.
However there has been some changes to predicted costs and so certain line items in the budget have changed
This does not mean that there will be no change in the precept paid on your council tax bill as this is calculated by Wiltshire – however the amount your PC received will stay the same.
The budget will be agreed at the AGM 14th May 2018.
