Langport Town Councils’ aim and priority is to be open and transparent in all its financial activities and ensure that our financial management is adequate, effective and has a sound system of internal control.

The Town Councils’ financial regulations provides the Councillors and Officers the framework to achieve this aim.

For the financial year 2016/2017 the ‘Precept’ is £76,512. The Town Council’s portion of Council Tax bill depends on which band a property is in. Properties are put into one of eight bands, A being the lowest, and H the highest, with Band D being the average.

For 2016/2017 the Town Council’s Band D equivalent was £238.44 per year.
