No Cap on Precept requests from Parish and Town Councils

The Government has confirmed that the 3 year moratorium on the application of the referendum principles (sometimes known as "capping") to local parish and town councils is to continue for 2020-21.

However the Government 'remains concerned about the pressure placed on taxpayers from thousands of town and parish councils across England' and expects them to exercise 'even greater restraint' for 2020/21.

As in previous years the Government will keep the matter under 'active review' for future years.
