BRACKNELL Town Council's precept is to remain at £75.64 for a Band D property for 2014/15.

Funding for South Hill Park is to be maintained at £135,000, and there will be spending on refurbishing play areas at Harmans Water, Birch Hill, and Winscombe (Great Hollands).

In addition, the regular programme of maintenance for play areas, parks and bus shelters will continue. Fees for sports pitches and other services have been frozen. £29,000 of grants to local groups will continue.

Cllr Chris Turrell, leader of the council, said: "We recognise budgets are still tight for many people. Therefore we have kept prices steady, to ensure our sports and recreation facilities continue to offer good value."
