At the Full Council meeting on 15 January, Councillors approved the Town Council’s budget and precept for 2024-25.
The budget outlines the Council’s income and what it plans to spend. It also includes the precept – the amount of tax each household pays towards the services of Edenbridge Town Council, which is collected via your yearly Council Tax bill from Sevenoaks District Council. Our precept is the smallest proportion of your Council Tax bill (other services covered by your bill include the Police, Kent County Council and Kent Fire & Rescue).
Chairman Cllr Bob Todd said: “Our budget reflects the quality services we plan to provide while being mindful of the increase in costs we are all facing.”
Council Budget 2024-25
Income (estimated): £113,390 plus the precept
Council precept: £745,185
Band D equivalent: £188.32, an increase of 15p per week/or £7.89 annually
Council Tax bills will be issued by Sevenoaks District Council in March, for the financial year starting on 1 April.
