Belper Town Council Increase Precept By 10%

Published on Tuesday 17 January 2023

A statement on the Belper Town Council web site announced that they are increasing the precept by 10% in the 2023/24 budget.


The full statement is shown below;

Last financial year the Council agreed there should be no increase in the precept, given the hardship inflicted by the Covid-19 pandemic. At the Full Council meeting on 10th January 2023 the budget for the next financial year was considered. A 10% increase, in line with inflation, was agreed. To achieve this, the Council decided to offset some of the significant increases in costs through using its General Reserve.

This means that the precept (the portion of Council Tax which is paid to Belper Town Council) will increase from £590,058 to £649,064.

It would mean for a Band D property the charge will increase by £8.13 per annum or £0.69 per month.

Once again a strong commitment to supporting the many organisations that make our town such an invigorating and caring community has been made. A total of £107,225 has been allocated in annual grants to maintain and enhance the services provided by:

Amber Valley Community Transport

Belper Early Years (FUN)

Blend Youth Project

Citizens Advice

Fleet Arts

Belper Leisure Centre

Belper Youth Sports Festival

Community Food Hub

In addition small grants, applied for monthly, remain at a total of £20,000. This has benefited numerous local organisations providing an array of services and opportunity throughout the town during the current financial year, including:

Transition Belper - Alton Manor Open Spaces

Unite (Community) - Death Cafes

Wilder Belper – Equipment

Belper Ukranian Refugee Group – Summer School

Pride in Belper – Annual Event

Belper Meadows Sports Club – Building Repairs

Pentrich & South Wingfield Revolution Group – Information Board

Milford Community Green Space – Building Materials, Collective Revolution - Youth Events

Hope for Belper – Community Food Hub

Surtal Arts – Event

St Johns Ambulance – Youth Training

SSAFA – Belper Focussed Support Service

Rotary Club – Art Exhibition and Competition

Blend Youth Project – Event

Nailed It – Event

Transition Belper – Belper Goes Green Festival

This year, we have taken the view that it is essential that the town continues to develop. This can best be done by supporting and assisting local organisations particularly in their ability to face the projected financial increases that will affect us all. And, to build and support a staff team who are able to continue developing the town in line with the Corporate Plan and promoting it's growing reputation.
