Annual Precept

Every year in February, Fair Oak & Horton Heath Parish Council agrees its budget and sets its ‘precept’ for the forthcoming year at a meeting of the Full Council. The precept is the Council Tax which is raised and spent by Eastleigh Borough Council to fund the services it provides. Fair Oak & Horton Heath Parish Council does not receive funding from Central Government, nor does it receive any rates from local businesses. For 2019/20, the precept is £420,258 with £103.11 per Band D property. This is a slight increase of 0.63% from the previous year.

Annual Return

Each year the Parish Council is required to complete and submit to its External Auditor, an Annual Governance and Accountability Return. Once the return has been verified by the External Auditor, it is published on the Council’s website. Please see the links below for the previous years’ Annual Governance and Accountability Returns.
