Consulting On Our Finances

Finances 2020/21

The services and activities described on this site are funded from the Council’s own resources.

 

Each year, the Council decides on the services it wants to provide and calculates how much it needs to fund them. This amount is known as a Precept – an amount which is added to your Council Tax bill each year and collected for us by Torfaen County Borough Council.

 

Cwmbran Community Council has set its Precept for 2019/20 at £651,495 (£50.23 Band D equivalent)

 

The Precept reflects the Council’s commitment to support community organisations, encourage the arts and deliver events and other important local services.

 

We need to ensure that the Council can respond to new challenges and that its facilities and premises are up to scratch.

 

We must also, of course, ensure that our work force is properly supported.  We are confident that the budget represents excellent value for money.

 

This is how the Council has allocated its money in 2019/20
