Disley Parish Council sets an annual precept, as part of the Council Tax, to help fund the many local services which it provides.
Although the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic have reduced significantly over the last few months, the Council’s income from the Community Centre and Community bus is still reduced. The Council works hard to keep its costs down but staff salaries and particularly energy costs have continued to rise.
The Parish Council appreciates that many Disley & Newtown residents continue to experience financial pressures and is, therefore proposing a modest increase of 2.23% to the precept for 2022/23. There was a zero increase for 2021/22.
The 2022/23 annual precept for a Council Tax Band D home will now be £77.62, or the equivalent of £1.49 per week.
The Parish Council believe that this still represents excellent value for money considering the services it provides, such as:
- Disley Community Centre.
- Disley Community Bus Scheme.
- Parks and play areas.
- Three allotment sites.
- CCTV monitoring in the village centre.
- Village Ranger service.
- Community Grants.
- The Council’s website, the Disley News and eBulletins.
- Village events such as the Christmas Extravaganza.
- Electric vehicle chargepoints.
- Village streetlighting.
- Disley & Newtown hanging baskets and planting
It should be noted that Disley Parish Councillors receive no form of salary or allowance and give their time for the benefit of the Disley and Newtown community.
