Annual Return 2016/17
The Precept is that element of your Council Tax that is paid to Little Addington Parish Council.
Every year, the Parish Council draws up budgets and calculates how much money it needs for the next Financial Year. These are usually finalised at the January Full Council meeting and then submitted to East Northamptonshire District Council (ENDC). ENDC co-ordinates the other demands from Northamptonshire County Council, the Police and themselves and come up with the rate to be paid from 1st April of that year.
For the financial year 2019/20 Little Addington Parish Council has requested a precept of £11,897.
The Smaller Authorities Transparency Code came into force on 1 April 2015 and requires the online publication of certain information which the Government requests, to provide taxpayers with a clear picture of the authority’s activities, spending, and governance, and will improve the ability of communities to hold local public bodies to account. This includes any information on joint committees. All smaller authorities must make sure they are compliant.
