council tax bills for Burnham-On-Sea after miscalculation
tax bills in Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge
are set to rise by just 20p this year - which is less than the
52p a year increase orginally announced by the Town Council earlier
Clerk Eileen Shaw said on Wednesday (February 22nd) that the council
had miscalculated a figure, meaning the actual amount required
by tax payers in the town is 32p a year lower than expected.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "A precept demand of £529,044
means a band D figure for 2012/13 will be £76.29 and not
£76.61 as I reported. I can only apologise for this error."
result of this is that for Burnham and Highbridge the increase
for 2012/13 over 2011/12 represents a 20p per year increase for
a band D property, equivalent to a 0.27% increase. As the increase
is so small it represents to all intents and purposes a standstill
