Each year the Parish Council sets a Precept which an amount taken with the Council tax bills sent out by Swindon Borough Council. For next financial year, 2019-2020 the Parish Council is raising the Precept by 2% and will collect a total of £848,215.06. Two thirds of the Precept is spent on services such litter bins, flytipping, shrub maintenance and grass cutting that keep the Parish clean and green. The remainder is spent on staffing, local grants including one to increase opening hours at the West Swindon Library, play areas and environmental maintenance and improvements.
