Expenditure over £500

The transparency code for local councils means we must make public any expenditure over £500.  Our transactions can be accessed here

 

CIL Receipts and Expenditure

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge that local authorities can set on new development in order to raise funds to help fund the infrastructure, facilities and services - such as schools or transport improvements - which are needed to support new homes and businesses. In Wiltshire, a proportion of this is passed to town and parish councils to use at a local level. Where a Neighbourhood Plan is in place, this will be 25% of the CIL receipt and where there is no Plan, 15% is paid. The Marlborough Area Neighbourhood Plan is currently being progressed and publication is likely to be in 2019/20.

Precept

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:
