AN INCREASE in Horndean Parish Council’s precept for the council tax bill is still being considered.

The council has proposed a rise of £6.92 a year for its services, going up from £73.44 to £80.36 for a Band D property – an increase of 13p per week.

But no final decision has been made and the finance committee deferred the decision until later this month.

Five councillors voted for deferral, three against and there were five abstentions. The rise would help pay for improvements to open spaces and recreation areas.
