The Precept is the element of your Council Tax that is paid to Market Bosworth Parish Council.
Every year, the Parish Council draws up a budget and calculates how much money it needs for the next financial year. From the budget a precept is calculated. A request for the precept is submitted to Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council in January each year. H&BBC co-ordinates the demands from all the parish councils as well as the demands from Leicestershire County Council, the Police, the Fire Service and themselves to compile the rate to be paid from 1st April that year.
The Precept for 2016-17 is £66,910.40.
The Precept for 2017-18 is £90,329.04.
An explanation for the increase is as outlined in the Precept Article below.
