Council Tax for year 2019 / 2020 - East Winch & West Bilney
Council Tax 2019 / 2020.
County Councillors have approved budget proposals a rise of 2.99% for their element of the Council Tax for 2019 / 2020. A Band D charge is likely to increase by about £40.
(Note that the proposed 2.99% increase is the most that the County can legally increase the charge without having to hold a referendum on the subject)
It is reported that the Borough Council cabinet approved proposals for its budget on Tuesday February 5th. Council will debate this on 18th. February.
If implemented it will increase the Borough's element of the Council Tax by £4.50 for a Band D property.
Similarly, it has been reported that the Norfolk police and crime panel approved plans to increase the Policing element of the Council Tax by more than 10%. This rise will mean an increase of £24 for a band D property.
This change was the greatest of the options presented in a public consultation called for by the Police and Crime Commissioner.
As stated in the Minutes of the Parish Council held in January, (paragraph 15), there is to be no increase in the Parish Council element of the Council Tax for the year 2019 / 2020. The precept for the year remains at £12,500.

Council Tax Support scheme - 2018 / 2019 Consultation
If you’re on a low income you may be able to get help with your Council Tax.
Council Tax Support
The Borough Council runs a scheme that provides help to people with the cost of their Council Tax bill if they're on a low income. This scheme is called local Council Tax Support.
The Borough's Council Tax Support scheme only applies to working age people. There is a national Council Tax Support scheme for people who are of pension age, and the rules are decided by central government.
Every year our Council Tax Support scheme is reviewed. We seek views from all local residents on the proposals for the coming year.
If you're pension age you're not affected by these proposals, but we would still welcome your views.
To learn more about this scheme click here. This will lead you to the Borough Council Consultation Questionnaire giving you the opportunity to comment on the Consultation.

Planned expenditure for the year, including the next stage of improving street lighting, would be covered by the expected income from the existing precept with additional funding from reserves.
The Parish Council has increased the Precept to raise £12,500 which includes a Special charge. This charge is to ensure that funds will be available for planned expenditure on replacing street lighting on Station Road. The sums shown below include the Special charge.
