On Monday 10th January 2022, Westbury Town Council met to agree the budget required for the next financial year 2022-23. The precept is the main source of income for the town council and is collected by Wiltshire Council on our behalf as part of the overall council tax bill. The income is used to help fund the services, assets, staff, and resources required to run an efficient town council. More information about the services and assets provided by Westbury Town Council, can be found on our website.
The increase will result in a band D household seeing an increase of a little over 92p per week from April 2022. Payments to Wiltshire Council are larger and your council tax bill also includes charges for the police and fire services. Their increases are determined separately. Band D properties are used as a measure of the national average, and houses in other bands (A to C) will see a smaller increase or (E to H) a larger increase.
