PRECEPT and BUDGET

Scarisbrick Parish Council has set a precept of £18.77 for the financial year 2023-24. This represents a modest increase on the previous year’s figure.  Scarisbrick Parish Council’s precept remains one of the lowest of all the parish councils within West Lancashire.

The precept is based on the Council’s approved budget for the forthcoming financial year. This is a budget in which the Council is looking to be proactive in making improvements for the parish whilst restricting any increase to within that determined by inflation.
