PRECEPT and BUDGET

Scarisbrick Parish Council has set a precept of £14.42p for the financial year 2017/18. This represents a modest increase of £0.42p on the previous year’s figure which is within inflation.  Scarisbrick Parish Council’s precept remains one of the lowest of all the parish councils within West Lancashire.

The precept is based on the Council’s approved budget for the forthcoming financial year. This is a budget in which the Council is looking to be proactive in making improvements for the parish whilst restricting any increase to within that determined by inflation.
