Bideford Town Council will be debating its precept at the end of the month. The staffing, finance and general purposes committee recommended an increase on January 7. That would be 9.94 per cent or 56p a week for a band D property. They said it would make up for reduced council tax support grants from Torridge. The precept will be finalised at the next full council meeting on January 28 at Bideford Town Hall.
