Finance Reports

Most of our Parish Council’s income comes from local taxes as a ‘precept’. The rules for how our Parish Council manages its finances are laid down in our Financial Regulations.

Our Financial Regulations are reviewed regularly and agreed upon by the entire council.

The Parish Council controls income and expenditure throughout the year to ensure that the Parish Council operates within the agreed budget.

The audit of accounts for the Parish Council for the year ended 31 March 2023 is concluded. The report from the Auditors is available from the links below.

Accessibility Regulations
We are aware that the Accounts and Audit Regulations requirement for a physical ‘wet ink’ signature on the original AGAR, does not allow parish council’s to fully comply with the Accessibility Regulations. The National Audit Office is aware that the two pieces of legislation are not compatible. This AGAR document is a scan and will not be fully compliant with the Accessibility Regulations.
