Supporting Local Councils in Leicestershire & Rutland

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Local Government Finance - No referendums ("capping") for Parish and Town Council council tax increases CONFIRMED

We are very pleased to announce that there will be NO "capping" of our councils in the next financial year, i.e., no requirement for a local referendum to be held for precept/council tax increases above a specific level. This means that councils remain able to precept according to need, and yet again emphasises the importance the government places on our councils being able to responsibly raise unlimited funds to serve the residents of English parishes.
