Explanation of Council Tax Bill

Residents of Haighton might have been surprised to see an increase for Haighton of 27.9% on their Council Tax Bill.  In fact, the increase is the result of a slight decrease in the number of properties or residents contributing to the total Council Tax raised from Haighton, causing the remaining ones to contribute more.  The Parish Council Precept for Haighton for the coming financial year is £750, the same amount as the last seven years.
