Each year Marlborough Town Council agrees its budget for the forthcoming year and sets the precept. This is to cover any shortfall in the budget the Council needs for the next financial year and is based on planned income (funds from investments, rental income etc) and expenditure (capital projects planned, running of services etc). The difference is the amount it needs to raise locally from Council Tax payers - the Precept. Wiltshire Council collects this on behalf of the Town Council and it is paid in two instalments during the financial year. The Town Council tries to ensure that the tax burden on local people is reduced by seeking external funding for projects where it can.

Find out more about the proportion collected by Wiltshire Council for Marlborough Town Council and the services it provides for you at a local level, which equates to around 10% of your overall bill:
