Parish Council Budget setting

The Budget is set every December/January for the forthcoming financial year. The financial year starts on 1st April and ends on 31st March. We get most of our money via the "Precept" which is a demand on the Borough Council to enable us to function. This demand is then passed on to parishioners via the Council Tax, but is kept as low as possible. If we have any large projects for example playground equipment, we can and do apply for grants from outside bodies such as landfill companies. We hgave been very successful with these applications in the past which has made a huge difference around the parish. However we usually have to contribute a small percentage in the region of 5% of the projects ourselves although we have sometimes been awarded 100% of the costs.

 

The documents below give our budget for the 2015/2016 financial year and a breakdown of previous years for comparison.
