Budget and Precept 2024/25
Pentewan Valley Parish Council
At a meeting held on Wednesday 20th December 2023, Pentewan Valley Parish Council approved its budget and precept demand for 2024/25 financial year.
The precept collected by Cornwall Council, is the parish council share of the council tax, based on the 2024/25 provisional tax information.
The parish council were able to reduce the precept demand by 23.5% meaning that a band D property will see the annual parish tax reduce from £30.49 to £23.33. That equates to £1.95 per month of 45p per week. This is considerably cheaper than many other parish and town councils and has been achieved by effective financial management and is assisted by other sources of income such as the Pentewan public car park.
Cllr Michael Ward said I am pleased to say that the council were able to reduce the parish council's precept it is satisfying to play our part in keeping bills as low as possible for residents, particularly when money is so tight for many.
Current services provided by the parish council include the provision of public toilets in Pentewan Village and car parks. Street furniture such as benches and litter bins and community noticeboards. The maintenance of footpaths and some highway verges, weed spraying, the development of the Neighbourhood Development Plan and supporting local organisations with grant funding.
The parish council has also been involved with larger projects such as the Sea flood defences for Pentewan Village, drainage works on Pentewan Hill. A New parish sign at Higher Tregorrick, extra street lighting at Tregorrick bus stops, resurfacing of the car park at Levalsa Meor, Tree planting at London Apprentice.
The parish council will continue to make improvements to local facilities and support local organisations on behalf of the residents of Pentewan Valley.
