Parish Council budget
The precept received from the Borough for 2015/16 is £6,500. This figure is based on the equivalent of 125.8 qualifying properties, after adjustments for discounts, and equates to £51.66 on council tax for a Band D property. It is adjusted up or down for other property bands.
Parish Council responsibilities
The Parish Council’s main duties are to:
- set a budget and a precept each year (the precept, which is funded from your council tax, currently averages around £52 per property);
- be aware of available grants and funding, and make applications as appropriate;
- encourage community participation and represent the interests of parishioners;
- liaise with other village bodies;
- maintain public rights of way;
- oversee planning applications;
- promote crime prevention;
- deal with drainage, ponds and ditches, highways, litter, closed churchyards, bus shelters, allotments, commons, community transport, recreational facilities, tourism;
- and much more.
