HOW IS THE PARISH

COUNCIL FUNDED?

 

The Council Tax paid by Mark residents, includes the spending requirements of Somerset County Council, Sedgemoor District Council, Avon and Somerset Police Authority and this Parish Council.

Many people do not realise that the Parish Council does not receive revenue support from central government, unlike the County and District Councils, neither does it receive any funding from local businesses and retailers via their payment of the non-domestic rate.

Each year the Parish Council calculates the money it needs to raise to provide its services and any capital projects, which are planned for the year ahead. This sum, called the precept, is the amount we levy on the District Council and which they collect as a proportion of the total council tax paid by Mark households.
