Finance

The Council's main source of income is the annual precept. Its main assets are land within the parish such as the village green and the heath. in addition, the Council owns the play area equipment and various benches and so on, around the Parish. The Council does not own any buildings in the parish.

The Council seeks to manage its finances in a clear and transparent way; there is no separate finance committee so all financial matters are considered by the full Council. Financial documents are published on this page and are listed by administrative years, which run from April to March. Quarterly reports appear only after the Council approves them. Please note that, as the Council normally meets only six times a year, it is often a couple of months after the end of a quarter before you can see the relevant information here.

The management of financial matters is governed by the Council's Financial Regulations which are based on a nationally sponsored template and updated as appropriate by the Council each year. Our current financial regulations can be found in the column on the left.
