Finance and Governance

The Parish Council is funded by the Precept (paid by Parishioners through their Council tax) and occasional grant funding. The Clerk is the Responsible Financial Officer and all payments are approved in council meetings and recorded in the Minutes.

Councillors are required to register financial (“pecuniary”) and any other (“non-pecuniary”) interests so that the decision-making process is absolutely transparent. All the Council’s corporate decisions must comply with local government statute and regulations, and individually Councillors must conduct themselves in accordance with the Council’s Code of Conduct.
