Community Council Finances

Polperro Community Council finances its activities primarily through the Precept (the amount of money it raises from council tax payers in the parish). This is collected by Cornwall Council as part of your Council Tax Bill and you will see the Parish element of Council Tax listed in the “Breakdown of Charges” box on your bill. Polperro Community Council has set its Precept for the current financial year (April 2017 to March 2018) at £74,975, a 6.2% reduction over the previous year. The precept amounts to around £2.04 per week for a Band D household.

The Council also receives income from the new door-pay systems on the public toilets at Crumplehorn and Fishnabridge, and whilst there are no previous figures to work on, an estimate of annual income has been used in the formulation of the Precept.

The Council begins its deliberations on the next year’s Precept level from its October meeting onwards and submits its final bid to Cornwall Council after the December meeting.
