  5. 5. Bypass Farm is not yet an approved project but … • We will decide next month whether or not to acquire the property. • If we do then we will first of all conduct a comprehensive consultation to determine what we should do with it. • It is then likely that we will begin spending on site preparation late in 2014/early in 2015 • Long term it is likely that the Parish Council will need to fund a substantial development and £20k plus per year extra costs • If we acquire Bypass Farm it can’t be used for housing January 2014 2014/15 precept and budget 5
  6. 6. Our budget is a mix of revenue and capital • The capital element can be largely funded out of reserves.

  7. 7. In 2013/14 our funding came from a mix of sources • The precept. This was the main part; • Section 106 funding. This can be considerable but cannot be budgeted in year because we don’t know how much it will be or when it will be paid; • Localised Council Tax Support. This is a grant from central government paid via South Cambs and amounted to £19288. • South Cambs has indicated that it will not pay this support for 2014/15 despite central government being clear that it should do so; and • Draw down of reserves. In order to avoid an increase in precept the Parish Council chose to do this. January 2014 2014/15 precept and budget 7
  8. 8. This means that we have limited options this year … • The Parish Council has chosen to raise the precept by an amount equal to the Local Council Tax Support Grant which it is entitled to but will not receive • This is £19288 and is 7.33% of the base precept and will increase the precept to £282488 • That leaves £4203 unfunded • The Parish Council proposes to fund this outstanding amount from reserves. 2013/14 base precept £263,200 Support Grant sub total £282,488 total need for 2014/15 £286,691 remaining January 2014 £19,288 £4,203 2014/15 precept and budget 8
