Woodhall Spa councillors vote to increase bills - by 0.79 per cent


Parish councillors in Woodhall Spa have imposed an increase in their share of council tax bills for the next 12 months - but by less than one per cent.

Councillors settled on a precept for the coming financial year of £53,040 - the difference between the council’s estimated income and expenditure.

The figure translates to a two per cent increase but the number of Band ‘D’ properties in Woodhall Spa has increased - resulting in a rise of 0.79 per cent.

There were suggestions of a bigger increase because of the legal costs of the Jubilee Park saga and a cut in the rate support grant from East Lindsey District Council.

However, bills will go up to accommodate a two per cent increase by ELDC and an excepted rise in the police precept. The county council precept has been frozen.
