On this page you will find details of all the councils finances in the form of the Precept and Budget Proposals for the current or next year and the Annual Accounts and Annual Return for the last or previous years. The documents are listed chronologically. Historical documents are available by request.

Precept

The funding for parish councils is allocated by the district council and is taken from the area’s council tax; this is called an annual precept.

The income and expenditure for the next financial year are calculated in the form of estimates and this amount is added to the local council tax and then returned to the parishes in two half-yearly instalments.

Parish Councils can also apply for UK grants and funding.
