** PRESS RELEASE – PRECEPT INCREASE **
Four Marks Parish Council have increased their Precept request from East Hampshire District Council, using band D calculations, by £9.26 per household per year, this equates to 17p per week. The precept is a component of the council tax levied on the local government electors in the parish. The money raised through the precept finances the activities that the parish council carry out under their discretionary powers and legal obligations. The Parish Council have this year taken a pro-active approach to increase the precept in line with other parishes with a similar electorate, pre-empting services being devolved down from both District and County Councils and a future Government cap. There is also a need within the village to upgrade the community facilities and following a survey monkey exercise last year, those members of the electorate who responded, were in favour of a precept increase to fund the upgrade of the facilities. If you have any questions regarding the increase or indeed any other issues, financial or otherwise, then please contact the Clerk/RFO at the Parish Office (email@example.com or 01420 768284)
