Every year, the Town Council has to decide what it wants to do in the coming year(s), the costs of the plans are estimated and the Council draws up a budget to work out how much money it needs for the next financial year. The Town Council then works out how it will pay for the budget plan (for example: grants, fees and charges, savings, Council tax precept).  The “precept” is the name given to the amount of money the Council takes from Council tax.  It can be supplemented by funds from savings and money set aside in previous years.

North Northamptonshire Council co-ordinates its own and the other demands (from the Office of Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, and all the town and parish councils) to work out how much each household must pay.

The amount you pay in Council Tax for 2022/23 is divided amongst the following:

  • North Northamptonshire Council
  • Office of Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner
  • Parish/Town Councils – these councils are separate legal bodies, responsible for their own finances via a Council tax precept.
