Council Precept & Council Budget

Council Precept

Filey Parish Precept
The Town Council in 2014 received a total precept of £130,000 which was made up of £122,880 precept and £7,120 discretionary grant. The grant was central government money passed on to Town and Parish Councils by Scarborough Borough Council. In 2015 the grant was not passed on to Town and Parish Councils by the Borough Council, so in order to maintain a precept level of £130,000 the Town Council has raised its precept for 2015/16 by 3.48% which equates to an increase of £1.53 for a Band D rated property.

The Parish Precept is requested from the Billing Authority (Scarborough Borough Council) each year and is an amount of money which is required by Filey Town Council to run the Council and provide its local services and functions for its community.

The following figures have been provided by Scarborough Borough Council (as the Billing Authority) to confirm the Band ratings.
