Serving the People of Wootton, Northamptonshire

Financial Information


Your Precept

Precept is the element of your Council Tax that is paid to Wootton Parish Council by West Northamptonshire Council. It is paid in two instalments within the financial year to which the precept relates.

Towards the end of each financial year, Wootton Parish Council and its Councillors draft an annual budget and calculates how much money is required for Wootton Parish Council to operate within that financial year. The Precept request is then submitted to West Northamptonshire Council.

Your Council Tax

Council Tax charges are based on your property's band and the Parish area in which you live, a spreadsheet identifying all Parish Councils within West Northamptonshire is available as a download document through the following link:

A government body called the Valuation Office Agency decides which band your property sits within.

Most of your Council Tax will be spent on local council services.

However, West Northamptonshire Council also collects money through your Council Tax for other organisations to pay for services that will benefit the whole of West Northamptonshire such as Police and Fire Services; in addition to collecting money on behalf of Town and Parish Councils, where applicable. Details will be shown on your annual Council Tax demand.
