Parish Council Precepts
Parish councils are funded by a small part of the Council Tax known as the parish precept.
How the precept is calculated
Each parish council forecasts how much money it is going to need the following year. This is then divided by the number of nominal band D properties in the parish. In Settle there are 1098.98 nominal band D properties for year 2018/19. This is calculated from the number of properties in each tax band. As an example,
100 band A properties is multiplied by 0.67 the banding ration for band A properties, has a nominal band D of 67 properties.
100 band H properties is multiplied by 2 the banding ration for band H properties, has a nominal band D of 200 properties.
