The ‘Precept’ is the amount of funding a Parish Council requests from the local District Council (DC). The DC collect this figure from local householders through the Council Tax and the breakdown of the figures should appear on your Council Tax bill (along with the amounts requested by the Police, Suffolk County Council and Suffolk Coastal DC).

At their meeting on 17th January UPC took the difficult decision to raise the Precept request for 2019/20 by the October 2018 CPI figure (2.4%), approximately 10p per month for a Band D property. This follows a number of years of a zero increase however the rising costs of providing services has necessitated this increase.
