Parish Council Budget 2015/2016

Following extensive working discussions amongst councillors, Ilkley Parish Council has set its budget for 2015-16.

Discussions have taken account of the present economic climate including the potential loss of funding for some of the town’s services and facilities such as the Manor House Museum and the toilets at White Wells. Councillors feel that it is important that sufficient funds are available to the Council to protect vital valued services and facilities for the town’s residents, if it is required to do so.

Following a meeting of the Full Council on Monday 26th January 2015, Councillors agreed to set the precept for a Band D property at £24.10 per annum, which equates to an increase of 6 pence per year per Band D property.

Strenuous efforts are made year on year to moderate expenditure wherever possible and the Council remains committed to achieving value for money for Ilkley residents. In real monetary terms the increase in the precept remains very reasonable.

The parish precept is the only tax that is spent entirely in the town, and secures the services of fourteen volunteer councillors to represent Ilkley residents, to manage projects on behalf of the community and to raise issues of local concern with the principal authority and other public bodies.  The precept agreed by the Council is modest when compared with those set by other councils across our region.

By agreeing its budget for 2015-16, the Parish Council hopes to continue to make significant contributions to the life and fabric of our wonderful town.
