Other financial decisions
The December full council meeting is the time each year when we need to make financial decisions for the year ahead.
Besides determining the precept we also agree our total budget for the coming year. If you have an interest in the specifics of the Town Council’s projected spend for 2018/19 please feel free to ask me for a copy
Councillors decided that they wanted to freeze room hire fees at the Town Hall as a thank you to the various community groups and organisations who use our facilities and make the Town Hall a real community hub. Increasing the precept enabled us to do this.
Councillors also decided to freeze cemetery fees at their current level.
Allotment fees will be increased by £1 per plot from October 2018. That is the standard increase that we impose each year.
This is also the time of year when Councillors decide on the outcome of applications for community grants. This year they decided to award grants to Chudleigh Youth Centre (£1,000), Teignbridge Homeless Action Trust (£500), Chudleigh & District Amenity Society (£200) and Chudleigh Writers’ Circle (£100).
