The Parish Council is primarily funded through a levy on the council tax applied by Bath City council. This levy is called the Precept.
Every year the council has to budget its costs for the following year and from that budget request an appropriate Precept from Bathnes.
In England and Wales the council tax paid by all households is made up of several elements to pay for services provided by County Council, District Council (in Kelston these are combined in the City Council), Police, etc. The Precept is the element charged by your local or parish council and is collected on its behalf as part of the overall Council Tax demand. In 2015-16 87% of local councils in England are collecting a tax averaging (for a Council Tax Band D household) £54.12.
