Witney Town Council Precept 2021

The average taxpayer in Witney will be asked to pay a precept rise of less than 40 pence a month for Witney Town Council’s share of the Council Tax from 1st April. The decision to increase the precept payment was agreed unanimously by all members of Witney Town Council at its meeting of the Full Council on Monday 15th February 2021.

The precept has increased by 3% which will enable the Town Council to maintain its council’s general fund and fulfil its statutory obligations. This is a rise of £4.64 per Band ‘D’ property for the year.

The Town Council offers a range of services to residents, which include: Allotments, Cemeteries, Civic and Community Events, Grants to Voluntary Organisations, Sports Pitches, Public Halls, eleven Recreation Grounds, Planning Matters (consultee on planning applications for the planning authority), The Town Hall and Street Scene.

Many of these do not generate any income and need constant re-investment to enable them to remain an asset for the community.

The precept also takes into account budget setting for specific projects across the town and these include:

  • Park Road Play area
  • Open Spaces Strategy
  • Corn Exchange phase 2 – seating, lighting and sound
  • Windrush Place new allotments
  • Cemeteries – review of accessibility and associated works
  • Rebranding
  • Christmas lights display – retender

The Town Council, in common with many businesses, has lost income during the last year due to the pandemic. It is not eligible for any of the Central Government grants and furthermore, it has also lost the Council Tax Support grant.

The forecast cost of running the Town Council’s services for 2021-2022, cannot be anticipated due to the pandemic, so this years’ budget represents a prudent estimate of income and outgoings.

Witney Town Council works closely with West Oxfordshire District Council and Oxfordshire County Council to ensure that all the services provided improve the quality of life for people of Witney.

The Town Council looks forward to maximising the benefits from the small increase in continuing to improve and upgrade the delivery of its services and meeting the expectations the aspirations of its residents.

Cllr Luci Ashbourne, Leader of the Council said;

“I’m proud that – despite the challenges the last year has thrown at us, and the resultant funding difficulties – Witney Town Council is only raising its council tax by around 10 pence a week.

This will not only allow us to continue providing our services, but also to expand what we can offer to the people of Witney at a time when our community needs it the most, and to carry on with the many exciting developments that are in the pipeline.

Whether it is a revitalised Corn Exchange, revamped open spaces, or helping the town’s many volunteer groups respond to the challenges of the ‘new normal’, the Town Council is committed to being the progressive, dynamic and forward-thinking council that Witney deserves”

Marie Curie Day of Reflection

Today’s Day of Reflection was marked by a minute’s silence at midday today. Accompanied by Cllr Luci Ashbourne, Leader of the Town Council, Sharon Groth, Town Clerk and announced by Town Crier, Jean Postlethwaite Dixon, our Mayor, Cllr Joy Aitman spoke about the meaning of the day.
In a couple of emotionally powerful sentences that left everyone who paused to mark the moment feeling very moved, she described the year in isolation and what that has meant to those that have lost loved ones.
“You can’t mark today, a year on, with out reflecting on loss. Approximately 126,000 people have died and millions of families and friends have been unable to attend funerals, to hold each other or to mourn. As we stand in silence here today we not only remember those we have lost but also we share our grief with everyone who has lost someone. We look forward to a year of hope, recovery and coming together in our amazing town.”

Annual Town meeting postponed

March, is usually the time when Witney Town Council hosts the Annual Town Meeting.
This is NOT a Town Council meeting, but an annual statutory meeting of the town’s electors a public meeting of the Local Government electors of Witney, who have the right to attend, to speak and take part in the discussions.

Residents attending the Annual Town MeetingResidents attending the Annual Town Meeting

 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions it is not possible to do this in it’s normal format this year. Online meetings are not very satisfactory for larger numbers of people, so the Council has taken the decision to delay holding the meeting in the hope that restrictions will be lifted enough for it to take place in the usual way.
There is a time limit on this in order to meet the statutory requirement, so the provisional date for this is now towards the end of May and we will advise of the actual date nearer the time.
