Notification of the Precept Demand Decision for the Financial Year of 2024-25

At the Parish Council meeting of 15th January, Cllrs agreed not to increase the precept demand on residents of the Parish.  This was by a majority vote with one Cllr voting to decrease the demand and two absent Cllrs and recognizes that some of our residents continue to struggle financially with the cost-of-living crisis.

Cllrs are proud to say that this is the fourth year of not increasing the precept, whilst at the same time continuing to invest in the Parish with a number of projects in the last year, including continued support of local groups and charities with the Community Grant Fund, improvements to the War Memorial with Unknown Soldier Statues, noticeboards for the two parks in the parish, commemorative celebrations for the Kings Coronation including gifts for all the children at the three primary schools, new defibrillators, new noticeboard at Lincoln Way, additional Christmas decorations and rollout to Lincoln Way, and Christmas gifts for children at all three schools and finally a schedule of cleaning of playground equipment and bus shelters across the Parish.

Cllrs will continue to follow sound principles of effective financial management and budget compliance to ensure that the Parish Council continues to invest in the community whilst minimizing the financial impact on our residents.

The precept demand for Woodmansey Parish is £31,047.00 and residents are always welcome to attend Parish Council meetings to observe and contribute to how your Cllrs make financial decisions to benefit the Parish.
