What is a precept?

A parish precept is the amount that a Parish or Town Council has formally set to be collected for the purposes of its own expenditure. The billing authority (Milton Keynes Council) collects these parish precepts through the Council Tax and pays them to the individual Parishes.

How much are the precepts this year and when will they be paid?

The Council Tax leaflet produced yearly and sent to all households lists all of the individual parish precepts. The Council pays the precepts to the appropriate Parishes in two installments, in April and September.  Milton Keynes Council website explains the precept and also provides a list of current parish council precepts.
