Each year, Disley Parish Council sets a parish precept as part of the Council Tax, to help fund the many services it provides to Disley & Newtown.
Through prudent financial management, the Parish Council has minimised the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, and revenue from the Community Centre and Community Bus have now fully recovered. However, the results of the current financial crisis, particularly on energy costs and staff salaries, have impacted the Council’s running costs.
The Parish Council appreciates that many Disley & Newtown residents are also experiencing financial pressures and, therefore, it is proposed that there will be a small increase of 2% to the precept for 2023/24.
The new precept figure will equate to £79.20 per year for a Council Tax Band D home, or the equivalent of £1.52 per week.
The Parish Council believe that this still represents excellent value for money considering the services it provides, including:
- 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, Disley News magazine and eBulletins.
- Village events such as the Christmas Extravaganza.
- Electric vehicle chargepoints.
- Village streetlighting.
- Disley & Newtown hanging baskets and planting
The Parish Council acknowledges the generous help given by village volunteers and 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.
