Many of you will have already or will shortly be receiving your Council Tax bill for 2018/2019. The amount for Appleby-in-Westmorland Town Council shows an increase of 33.9%. This is because the amount that would usually be claimed by Eden District Council as “Special Expenses” is now zero. This amount has been transferred to the Town Council’s precept so that we can deliver some of the services that Eden District Council will no longer be delivering such as Market Arcade Toilets. Precept Information gives more details on how the Council’s precept has been calculated.
