Parish Precept

We often get asked about where our finance comes from. Each year North Somerset charges us Council Tax, which on average is about £2000 per household in Portbury. Within that there is an annual charge (precept) on each household which provides the Parish Council with a total of about £29,000 a year to take care of the things we are responsible for. This equates to an average of £60 per household. Funds are spent on a wide range of things - summarised below. For more detail you can look at our minutes and financial records - here


You can also get a fuller breakdown of how North Somerset put together our Council Tax each year look here.

To continue to our welcome page go here. North Somerset have now finalised the new Local Plan (2039) and it is now in its final consultation stage. To view and comment on it go here. Consultation is open until the 24th of January via the NSC website.
