Bullet Points of meeting 12th January 2022

Pailton Parish Council Meeting 12th January 2022

Borough Councillor: Tony advised that the Walsgrave island is currently under consultation of reconfiguration, this is being led by National Highways with 11 options available, the deadline is 14th February.

Precept
The budget was discussed line by line, savings were made on repairs and website costs. The increase of street lighting has caused the budget to rise in 2021, this is due to rising energy costs and repairs to the street lights. Therefore the precept needs to increase for 2022/2023 to ensure street lighting is covered.
Resolved: LM proposed to set the 2022/2023 precept at £15,740.00, this is an increase of £879.00, which is an annual increase per Band D household annually of £4.51.
The Parish Council wish to make clear the increase is to cover street lighting only
