Budget 2017-2018

On Monday 23 January 2017 the Parish Council set the budget and Council Tax for the coming year.

The recommendation from the Parish Clerk/Responsible Finance Officer was that there is a 0% increase in the Precept keeping the Parish Council element of Council Tax to £50,27 for a Band D property.

Being able to have no increase for a second year running, despite a busy year including constructing a Groundsmen's store and purchasing the equipment to bring the grounds maintenance service in-house from this April, has been achieved by good housekeeping and effective purchasing by the council's officers.

The Budget for 1/4/2017- 31/3/2018 was UNANIMOUSLY AGREED.

The Adopted Budget is available here

Hiltingbury Tennis Court Key Cards Opening Hours

The new magnetic locks have been fitted to the tennis courts please close the gate(s) when leaving after play. It is important to note that the gates WILL LOCK SHUT OVERNIGHT AT 2200hrs each day!

From 1 February 2016 access has been by key card. Play is on a booking basis on 3 courts and turn up and play on court 4. Play should not last more than an hour and the court should then be given up to the people waiting - play can be extended if nobody is waiting for the court. The play hour is taken as being 'on the hour', not necessarily the time when play started. 

If people turn up and the new hour has started please give up the court to the new arrivals as soon as the actual game you are playing is completed. 

Please see the tennis courts page of the website for Terms and Conditions of Use for the tennis courts (which apply now), further details and the court booking information (needed from 31 January 2016).
