Town Council Precept below the rate of inflation.

On 30th January 2018 Shaftesbury Town Council set its budget for the coming year and a precept of £480,183. The precept is the amount of money received by the Town Council from the District Council through the Council Tax. The increase per band D household will be only £1.97 per year, an increase of 1.28%. (inflation over the past year was 3%.)

The Council has carefully scrutinised where its money is spent and looked at what is important to the residents of Shaftesbury. An ambitious strategic plan and collaborative working with the community has started the journey of working smarter for the town.
