TOWN COUNCIL SET PRECEPT FOR 2023-2024
January 18, 2023
Flitwick Town Council has set its precept (the Town Council part of your Council Tax bill) for the 2023/24 year. At last night’s Full Council meeting, Councillors agreed on an increase of 13% which equates to a rise of £21 per year or £1.75 per month for a Band D household.
With rising inflation and the impact of the cost of living crisis, Councillors have focused on delivering efficiencies in the budget to keep the increase in the precept as low as possible without implementing significant cuts to services and events so that the community can still enjoy events such as the free Family Fun Day.
The Town Council remains committed to providing services and facilities that support all areas of our community; acting on resident feedback through our Annual Residents’ Survey whilst ensuring the Council delivers value for money in these challenging economic times.
In this video Town Mayor, Cllr Andy Snape, together with Deputy Town Mayor, Cllr Clare Thompson and Chairman of Community Services, Cllr Keith Badham, explain more about the precept decision and the projects, services and events planned for this year to enhance our town and build on the strong community spirit.
Printed copies of the report are available from the Town Council offices at The Rufus Centre or call 01525 631900 if you would like a copy sent to you.
You can also pick up a copy at The Hub ‘warm space’ every Monday, at our stall inside the Village Hall at Flitwick Market on Friday 27th January, and at the Flitwick Tree Giveaway on Sunday 29th January during the Sunday Market at the Town Square.
