Disley Parish Council sets an annual precept as part of the Council Tax to help fund the many local services which it provides.
The Coronavirus crisis has had a significant effect on the Council’s income, as restrictions to the use of the Community Centre and Community bus have meant a major loss in revenue. To counteract this, the Council has worked hard to keep its’ costs down and has looked to make savings wherever possible.
The Parish Council fully appreciates the financial challenges that many Disley & Newtown residents may be experiencing and, therefore, has taken the decision to freeze the precept for the year 2021/2022.
The 2021/2022 precept will total £156,614 with the annual precept for a Council Tax Band D home remaining at £75.93, or the equivalent of £1.46 per week.
The Parish Council believe that this represents excellent value for money, taking into account the services it provides, such as:
- Disley Community Centre.
- The Disley Community Bus Scheme.
- Three parks and play areas.
- Three allotment sites.
- CCTV monitoring in the village centre.
- The Village Ranger service.
- A Community Grant Scheme.
- The Disley News and Disley & Newtown eBulletin.
- Village events such as the Christmas Extravaganza.
Disley Parish Councillors receive no form of salary or allowances and freely give their time for the benefit of the Disley and Newtown community.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4th January 2021 regarding a national lockdown, Disley Parish Council will continue to operate. However, some Parish Council activities and servives will be restricted due to Government guidelines on social distancing, non-essential travel and working from home etc.

The first phase of work to improve the Arnold Rhodes Playing Fields has now been completed, with a new tarmac path around the football pitch, resurfacing of the paths and courts and a new scooter track installed.
The new adult gym equipment has been installed in one of the former tennis courts and this is now ready for use.
A tree surgeon has cleared the foliage around the back of the tennis courts but further tree work will be undertaken when the ground is suitable to take the large equipment necessary without damaging the surfacing.
Three new pieces of toddler play equipment have been installed and work is on-going to fit the safety surfacing around the new equipment. The project manager is awaiting more quotes for the BMX track.
Further new play equipment has now been fitted in the original play area and the tennis court has been re-lined.
New seating and picnic benches have been installed around the park and trees planted for the orchard avenue.
The Parish Council will keep residents informed of progress on this exiting village project and the Council will hope to hold a family launch day upon completion.
