Finance & Governance

The Town Council is funded by the Precept (paid by Parishioners through their Council tax), occasional grant funding and other small income streams. The Clerk is the Responsible Financial Officer and all payments are approved in full council 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.
