Council freezes council tax but vows to continue playground refurbishment

Epping Town Council has confirmed plans to continue with its programme of playground refurbishment in the next financial year while freezing its precept for 2017-18.

The town council has five playgrounds and plans to refurbish one area each year.

Town clerk Beverley Rumsey said: "We have successfully received funding for our previous two playgrounds but we need to use some of our own funds to be able to attract outside assistance."

Frampton Road is the council's smallest playground which is being refurbished in the 2016-17 financial year at a cost of £38,000.

In the 2017-18 financial year the council will refurbish a larger playground, probably Parklands at Coopersale.

The precept was increased last year to pay for an extension to Bury Lane cemetery and to cover the cost of the council's Neighbourhood Planning.

The decision to freeze the council's share of council tax bills for 2017-18 means Epping Town Council's share of council tax bills will remain at £85.52 per Band D equivalent property.

The council has also frozen market pitch fees to help traders at the weekly Monday market.
