Chalfont St Giles Parish Council has completed the challenging annual process of budget setting.
Like so many people, businesses and organisations the parish council did not have the opportunity to run some of the activities planned for 2020 because of lockdowns and pandemic.
However, they are already planning some new activities for when it is possible to meet again.
A spokesperson from the council said: “We know that many families are struggling with being furloughed, job losses, working from home and that budgets for many are tight.
“To this end the parish council have agreed a 0 per cent increase in the council tax precept for 2021-2022.
“This makes the cost of the precept to a band D property £70.66, or approximately £1.36 per week.”
For that money residents will get street lighting, the recreation ground, play areas, dog waste bins, the village pond and green, amenity grass cutting and much more.
Over the last 12 months the parish council also provided grants of £3200 to help support those that have struggled through these difficult times.
