Fakenham's precept for the year ending 31 March 2011 will be �133,694 - an increase of 3pc on the previous year.
Meanwhile, Wells Town Council has succeeded in keeping its precept unchanged for the fourth year running after agreeing a figure of �68,000.
Councillor Mike Gates said the budgeting had been helped by an �11,000 budget surplus this year which meant the council would not need to increase the precept to pay for services within the parish.
