The town council has confirmed that it will continue to have the grass mowed/maintained on the part of Minsthorpe Vale which falls within our parish (as per the photo). This is to prevent it from becoming overgrown so it can still be used for sport/recreation – particularly for local kids.
The town council has decided to reduce the precept for 2019-20. The precept levied on each household will reduce by 2.1%.
For example, for ‘band A’ properties the precept will reduce from £204.25 to £199.98.
