- Credit: Copyright: Archant 2015
Costessey residents will have to pay a higher town council tax precept later this year.
The contribution to the overall council tax bill, which pays for Costessey Town Council services, will go up by 1.99pc on April 1.
It will mean people in a Band D property will pay £113.74 over the financial year until March 31 2019.
The 2017/18 town council precept contribution for a Band D property was £111.51 per financial year.
There has been a rise because of inflation and increasing council costs, according to a report.

Hilary Elias, town council clerk, said the increase was also because the Government's precept support grant had been reduced by £20,000 each year.
Patrick O'Connor, town council chairman, said: 'The 1.99pc increase is not much of a rise.'
