The Parish Council receives an annual precept from the Borough Council. For 2016/2017 the precept is £7000. This figure is worked out by calculating proposed income and expenditure and ensuring that there are sufficient funds available for contingencies (items for which costs are not known or unexpected items).
In addition the Parish Council receives annual grants from the Borough Council towards the upkeep of the churchyard and maintenance of the public rights of way network in the parish.
The Parish Council’s accounts are internally audited twice a year and externally once a year. Any member of the public has an opportunity to see any documentation presented to the auditors on request.
