Chapel-en-le-Frith parish councillors have agreed their budget for the coming year, with no increase in the parish rate for the fourth consecutive year.

The parish council have set their precept for 2014/15 at £102.921.00.

Due to recent government changes to the benefits system, which affects the amount councils can precept, the council will receive a Council Tax Support Grant of £9,047 to offset the shortfall of funding.

Chairman of the parish council’s finance committee, Cllr Liam McCarthy said: “The parish council is mindful of already stretched budgets in the community and through careful management of our proposed expenditure will not need to increase the parish rate this year.”
