Essex County Standard: Stanway residents to pay an extra £7 per year in tax Stanway residents to pay an extra £7 per year in tax

Stanway residents will pay an extra £7 in council tax.

At a meeting on Thursday parish council unanimously voted to increase the precept meaning band D residents will pay an extra 14p per week.

The 22 per cent increase will cover maintenance services and fund two new parish council committees, which will each have an £8,000 budget.

It is also due to a cut in the local parish grant.

I'd rather pay an additional three percent for the police authority that twenty percent for the parish. In my opinion Parish Councils are self serving organisations which should be seen as modern day dinosaurs. Stanway Parish Council looks for more money for additional committees to be formed to help defend the status quo, dig out ditches and clean footpaths. All Parish Councils should be disbanded. Stanway's gospel preaches one of no change, no expansion, no modernisation and no innovation. They like the world to remain frozen in their time rather that work with modern times. They represent the village idiots of modern society. Move forwards with CBC, not backwards with SPC! Let's also have a discussion on a unitary CBC independent of ECC (learn from the Swindon BC (ex Thamesdown), Wiltshire, model).
