The Precept is the amount the Town Council asks from Eden District Council as a proportion of the Council Tax paid by householders of Appleby. The Council utilises the precept, to provide its services and deliver its Council Plan.

The Town Council’s portion of Council Tax bill depends on which band a property is in. Properties are put into one of eight bands, A being the lowest, and H the highest, with Band D being the average.
