Current Financial Information
The Parish Council raises money for its work through the precept, which is an amount paid by every household in the Parish and appears on council tax bills. Each year the Parish Council decides what precept they need to set by looking at spending to date in the current financial year, projected spending for the coming year, future plans and any other income they may have.
The budget for 2021/22 was agreed at the Parish Council meeting on the 30th November 2020 and can be accessed here. On the basis for this budget and the reserves plan, it was agreed that the precept for 2021/22 would be set at £25,500.00
The Parish Council has a Reserves plan which looks at target project expenditure over the next ten years. The projects address issues raised by Parishioners in the Parish Plan and Neighbourhood Development Plan and includes building of a pedestrian bridge by the Bateman Arms and provision of a cycle path linking the top of the village (The Birches) though to the shop. Reserves projects already delivered include the new playground at Bar Meadow, the relocated war memorial at Hanbury Green and the purchase of the field behind the Grove (as part of the cycle path). The reserves plan is updated regularly as part of budget setting and budget review.
A finance statement is considered at each parish council meeting, and you can find the most recent statements below. A list of all cheques agreed for signature at meetings is included in the minutes of the meeting.
