Details of Council Spending over £500 from the 1st April 2018 is available here. This document is updated monthly.
The Council’s financial year runs from 1st April to 30th March annually. In the Autumn of each year, the Parish Council have discussions regarding the anticipated expenditure for the following financial year, based on current spends and future requirements. These calculations form the Budget for the following financial year, and determine the level of Precept that is to be collected from residents’ Council Tax. The Precept is requested in January from our superior Council and is paid to the Parish Council in 2 equal payments in April and October. These monies provide the majority of funds for the Parish Council to undertake all its activities.
