Total amount of New Homes Bonus received by year can be seen above. 25% of New Homes Bonus that is awarded to the Council is distributed directly to Parish and Town Councils who will then make decisions on what to spend that money on. A further 25% was earmarked to be spent on this Council's priority services (economic development) with the balance of funding used to support the Council's annual budget / Council Tax.
