The Parish Council is funded by a local tax called the Precept. This figure is set annually by the PC, (usually at the December meeting) and advised to Daventry DC who includes it in their annual Council Tax details. The current figure is £13,500 and the Council have agreed to maintain the Precept at this level for the financial year 2012/13. These funds allow the PC to cover all the administration costs required to maintain the village and also provide funds for specific projects. Please click here to view the current proposals.
All related documentation is available for inspection at the year-end when the accounts are completed following an independent internal audit and overview by centrally appointed external auditors, who not only check the figures, but also ensure that any payments made have been properly authorised within the legal framework that controls PC expenditure.
