The Local Government Transparency Code
The Local Government Transparency Code is issued to meet the Government's desire to place more power into citizens' hands to increase democratic accountability and make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision making process and help shape public services.
The Code requires that all Principal Authorities publicise specified categories of data, and recommends the publication of additional data. For Town and Parish Councils this is not enforceable by law for those with a budget below £6.5m, but is regarded as best practice.
Skegness Town Council receives the majority of it's income through the precept; an annual sum of money collected with the Council Tax by East Lindsey District. The precept set by the Town Council in January for the year 2017/18 is agreed at £403,837 which amounts to the cost of £75.71 per year for a Band D property.
The precept is calculated during the budget process. For a breakdown of how the precept is calculated please see the budget.
