I read with interest the comments made by Chichester Harbour Conservancy director Siun Cranny (‘Harbour body receives no grant’, letters, West Sussex County Times, November 8): ‘Chichester Harbour Conservancy does not receive an annual grant from West Sussex County Council.
‘We are a ‘precepting authority’, and as such have the power to instruct another local authority to collect an amount of council tax on our behalf...’.
Nice work if you can get it.
