Oxfordshire ALC had a meeting of its larger councils yesterday. There was a discussion about referendum principles.
In Oxfordshire, it appears that a good proportion of this year's increase will be due to two local factors – parishes funding children's centres which would otherwise have closed; and councils supporting local bus services.
Thame Town Council has estimated that less than 2% of its precept increase is for traditional Thame services, the rest is for additional services and ones previously provided by principal councils. More »
Please can you contact GAPTC to let us know what local factors have affected your precept? If possible could you do so by Friday 28th April, as we are collating this information to present to NALC; as part of the case to national government. » Less
