Financial Documents

Shurdington Parish Council raises money from its parishioners via the Council Tax process. We do this by ‘precepting’ on Tewkesbury Borough Council, who levy on tax payers in that parish or town as part of the Council Tax billing. A Council Tax payer’s bill will typically include a Council Tax charge for the county council, police authority, district or borough council and the parish council.

The precept for 2023/24 was agreed at the meeting of Council on 16th January 2023 IT WAS RESOLVED to accept the proposed budget and to have no increase in the 2023/24 precept due to the level of the predicted general reserve funds and the cost of living crisis. Therefore the Parish Council’s precept will remain at £27,610 for 2023/24.
