Tax increase

SONNING Common Parish Council is to increase its council tax precept by 20 per cent from April 1.

It means the average band D household will pay £77.68 a year for the council’s services, compared with £64.73 this year.

The council says it needs to budget for legal representation at two planning appeals.

It also needs £15,000 to revise the village’s neighbourhood development plan.

Most of the council tax paid by residents goes to Oxfordshire County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council.
