The Parish Council raises its income primarily from an annual precept (a mandatory demand) issued on their District Council and passed on to households within the Parish as part of annual Council Tax bills. The Parish Council needs this income to maintain and insure parish property, fund any other lawful expenditure authorised by the council and to pay the part-time clerk.
Budgets for the forthcoming financial year are approved by the whole Parish Council and form the basis for setting the precept for the year, which is also approved by the whole Council before being submitted to the District Council.
The clerk is responsible for council administration and running the council's finances. Financial reports and bank balances are reported by the clerk at every Parish Council Meeting and all new expenditure is approved by the Council and detailed in the Minutes of the Meeting.
Budgets for each year and expenditure and audit data for years where accounts have been finalised and audited can be accessed using the tabs on the left.
