REPORT ON THE PARISH COUNCIL MEETING OF 13 JANUARY 2020


One of the main items on the agenda at Englishcombe Parish Council's Meeting of 13 January was to approve the budget and precept level for the coming year 2020-21.
There were various points of view on the required precept level, as the amounts of income and payments were changing over the next few years.
The PROW (Public Rights Of Way) grant for clearing the footpaths would not be received, and only 50% of the Litter Pickers costs would be received from BANES.
In the following year 2021-22, the Parish Council would have to pay the full 100% of the Litter Picker costs.
A 5% precept increase was put forward but rejected, as it was thought by some to reduce the Parish Councils bank reserves by too big an amount.
The 20% precept increase was passed on a 3 to 2 vote (only 5 of the 7 Parish Councillors being present).
As a small parish, every precept increase of 5% gives extra revenue to the Parish Council of around £300. So an extra £1200 will be available for 2020-21.
It is forecast that even with this increase their will still be a deficit of around £1000 on the year.
