Hemyock Parish Council have approved a modest increase in the Parish Precept for the year 2010/11 which equates to a rise typically of less than 3p per household per week. 
The Council heard that the increase was needed to fund a range of useful initiatives which would be of real benefit to the community.  This included a pedestrian raised footway over the flood plain to the northern end of the village which would cost in the region of £40,000.  In a recent questionnaire, 92% of those responding felt that the footway was necessary especially to those who lived on the northern side of the Culm River.
