Budget

Parish Councils, irrespective of their size, have a statutory duty to prepare an annual budget. The budget process:

  • results in the council setting the precept for the following year;
  • gives the Clerk overall authority to make spending commitments in line with the decisions of the council;
  • enables progress monitoring during the year by comparing actual spending against planned spending.

The budget for the forthcoming year is prepared by the Finance Sub Committee in October and approved by full Council at the November meeting. The current budget is displayed below.
