2016

The Government is consulting on proposals to extend referendum principles to ALL parish and town councils. Please note that the consultation goes further than imposing capping on larger councils and now proposes imposing the cap on all councils (see page 13-14, para 3.3.6).

The consultation proposes that the principles for town and parish would be the same as for shire districts, which permits increases of less than 2% or up to and including £5, whichever is the higher, without triggering a referendum. Amounts above this would require a referendum, which the council would have to pay for.

Where parish and town councils have taken on devolved responsibilities from principal councils, it is proposed that referendum principles will not apply, as long as certain conditions are met.

When reading the document, please pay particular attention to pages 13-14, which refers to extending referendum principles to all parishes.

The consultation will close at 5pm on 28 October.
