b)   For those dwellings in those parts of its area to which a Parish precept relates, as set out in column 1 in Schedule A.

 

(ii)      That the Council Tax requirement for the Council’s own purposes for 2020/21 (excluding Parish precepts) be calculated as £93,807,900.

 

(iii)     That the following amounts be calculated for the year 2020/21 in accordance with Sections 31 to 36 of the Act:

 

a) £412,985,402           being the aggregate of the amounts which the Council estimates for the items set out in Section 31A(2) of the Act taking into account all precepts issued to it by Parish Councils.

 

b) £318,378,340           being the aggregate of the amounts which the Council estimates for the items set out in Section 31A(3) of the Act.

 

c) £94,607,062             being the amount by which the aggregate at a) above exceeds the aggregate at b) above, calculated by the Council in accordance with Section 31A(4) of the Act as its Council Tax requirement for the year. [Item R in the formula in Section 31B of the Act].

 

d) £1,395.11                 being the amount at c) above [Item R], all divided by Item T ((i)a) above), calculated by the Council, in accordance with Section 31B of the Act, as the basic amount of its Council Tax for the year (including Parish precepts).

 

e) £799,162                  being the aggregate amount of all special items (Parish precepts) referred to in Section 34(1) of the Act (as per the attached Schedule A).
