In order to be able to carry out its functions the parish council is funded through its precept, a portion of residents’ council tax. Each year the council will draw up a budget in order to determine the level of precept. As a local authority all the council’s accounts are open to public scrutiny, and below are links to the most recent audit documents (previous years are available from the Documents menu). In January the council ratified the precept for 2021-22 at £85,000. This represents an increase of 3.66% or £1.94 per annum for a band D property). The main factors in determining the figure were an increase in clerk’s hours, plans to install new play equipment and to replace the shelter on the Millennium Green. The council’s monthly spending and receipts are listed in the minutes of each meeting.
