Precept 2017/18

Precept 2017/18

The Precept is that element of your Council Tax that is paid to Breedon Parish Council.

Every year, the Parish Council draws up budgets and calculates how much money it needs for the next Financial Year. This year the precept is to be finalised at the December Full Council meeting and then submitted to North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC). NWLDC co-ordinates the other demands from Leicestershire County Council, the Police, Fire Brigade etc and themselves to come up with the rate to be paid from 1st April of that year. More »

The Parish Council is proposing to increase the precept from £16,000 to £21,000, which means your Council tax will increase to just under £1 per month per household.

The reason for this increase is to be able to fulfil on-going and new projects each year; such as, Village Signage, Queens 90th birthday memorial stone, Planting Schemes etc. for the villages. The Parish Council is extremely pro-active and continues to strive to make Breedon, Tonge and Wilson a great place to live and visit.

The precept also provides a budget for a small contribution to support the Flood Action Group. This group has done some extremely diligent and important work and have achieved so much working in partnership with Leicestershire County Council to take action to prevent a further flooding event. The Parish Council wishes to support their work in ensuring a Hydrological Survey is completed and remedial action is taken in terms of further attenuation of the flow into the villages in the Parish.

Other increases reflect a modest rise in existing expenditure and include a donation to the church to assist in mowing costs.

Parish Bulb Planting 2016

Parish Bulb Planting 2016

Parish Bulb Planting 2016

A very grey and damp start on Saturday the 12th greeted the 2016 village bulb planting team.

All members of your Parish Council took part, together with Intrepid volunteer Richard Bradley and the planting team set off to cover new areas of planting in all three villages to build upon the first bulb planting project which took place last year.

A priority has been to ensure that planting takes place around the entrance signs to each of the villages to greet visitors and residents alike at the start of spring. Jane led the advance party and cleaned all the grime and slime off the road signs so the display will look as attractive as possible. More »

Please could we ask any residents living near one of our road signs if they would be kind enough to give any adjacent signs a wipe over occasionally to keep them looking pristine.

A total of 1000 daffodil and 1000 bluebell bulbs were planted and we hope that we can all enjoy a successful spring flower show.

The parish Council hope to maintain a programme of planting and improvement throughout the villages and ideas and suggestions are always welcome so, please do contact your Parish Council! » Less
