Notice of Conclusion of Audit 2017

Annual Return 2016-2017


Budget 2017/2018

The Budget has been accepted by Council.  The Council has agreed a precept of £466,126, which represents an increase of 7% against last year. This in turn is an increase of 6% for a Band D property, meaning that the total amount now payable for a Band D property in Launceston for the Town Council’s services will be £168.15. This works out at a cost to our residents  of 46 pence per day.

 The monies we receive allow us to undertake all of the work and functions that happen throughout the town, including the grass cutting of many of the highways verges, the upkeep of parks and open spaces, the provision of allotments, the annual grant awards scheme, the operation of the Tourist Information Centre, publication of the Town Guide, publication of the quarterly Council newsletter ‘The Pulse’, operation of the cemetery and the provision of a car park and public toilets in the town.
