How is the parish council funded?
The parish council raises most of its money by the precept, the portion of your council tax which goes to the parish council.
The precept amount for 2021-2 is £131,329. This equates to £117.93 for a Band D household in Theale.
Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, the council has assumed little income will come from hire of its facilities. It has therefore taken a conservative outlook for this type of income.
