During this last year Council expenditure either made or committed was £324,450; some £57,450 in excess of the precept (the Town Council’s share of your Council Tax). Council’s ability to raise additional funds through rents, leases, accessing grants and other external sources of funding means that it can spend more on our community than it asks the community to contribute.
The Council tax passed to Westerham Town Council amounted to £267,000 in 2022/23, which cost £128.40 per year or £2.47 per week, for Council tax band D houses in Westerham/Crockham Hill.
We are proud that Westerham Town Council is able to offer residents good value for money, providing wide ranging services and facilities, with a vastly lower income than our neighbouring towns. The diagram below shows how your money is spent.
