Next year's precept
Old Buckenham Parish Council has agreed on a 25% increase in the precept requirement for 2009/10. A larger increase was contemplated so that more could be done to accommodate the village's wishes regarding capital projects in the next year or two. But the Council, having due regard to the current national financial situation, was minded to moderate any increase at this point in time. So the precept requirement for 2009/10 will be £15,000. The Council asks that householders bear in mind that the increase adds only £6.17 per annum to the council tax of a Band D house.
