Council Tax Bill – Additional Information

All properties in the village should now have received a Council Tax bill for financial year 2023/2024.

You may have noticed that the Flaxton Parish Council element of the Council Tax bill, known as the Parish Precept, has increased by 35% since the previous year, a higher percentage increase than other elements of the bill, such as policing.

The increase follows a 28% decrease in the precept in the prior 2022/23 year to adjust for an administrative error made in the 2021/22 precept.

The latest increase averages £6.50 per property (depending on Council Tax Band) following an average £7.30 decrease in the previous year.

The real increase in funding or ‘new money’ to the council is 10% as explained in the attached note Precept Explanation
