At a full council meeting on Wednesday 13 March, 2019 Peterborough City Council approved an increase to council tax by 2.99 per cent. Police and Crime Commissioner is rising by 12 per cent and the fire authority by three per cent.
Band D residences will be paying an extra £64.98 this year. Eye also has the Parish precept. This is charged on each property in the parish to fund the running costs of the parish council and the activities it takes on behalf of the village. This year that is £35.49 for a band D property which will raise £54,750 for the Parish Council. Eye still remains pretty much in the middle of the table with regards the cost of the precept, with villages such as Souththorpe (£8.36) and Orton Loungueville (£10.93) towards the lower end of the scale and Wittering (£65.36) and Castor (£88) the most expensive. The largest increases in the precept by per cent are Bretton with 73.8% and Thorney by 24.8%
