Budget Information

In December 2021 the Community Council set its share of the council tax for 2022/2023. We are happy to announce that local people will pay the same amount towards this share as they did in 2021/2022. This means a household living in a band D property in Far Cotton and Delapre will pay £48.21 per annum*. You will pay less if your home is in council tax bands A-C. You will pay more if your home is in band E or higher.

The budget for 2022/2023 is shown below.
