The Parish Council submits a request for funding to the district council early in the New Year. This is referred to as a precept and is the Parish Council’s share of the council tax. The precept is made up of next year’s expenditure, including an allowance for contingencies, payments to and from financial reserves and the inclusion of any income. In addition, the Council can apply for other funding such as grant awards for specific projects.
Our external auditors have now completed the audit for the 2017-18 year. The Statement of Accounts and External Auditor’s Report and Certificate can be viewed below.
