DONINGTON PARISH COUNCIL: Warning that future precepts may have to include costs of running Flinders Park
A £4,000 rise in Donington Parish Council's share of the 2019-20 precept does not reflect the costs of running Flinders Park, a councillor has warned.
The 16.7 per cent precept rise, from £24,000 in 2018-19 to £28,000 for the coming financial year, means the average Band D council tax rate will go up from £27.97 this year to £32.17.
But IDEA (Improving Donington's Environment for All) committee member and parish councillor David Hawkins warned that future precepts may have to include the costs of running Flinders Park.
