Finance and Grants

Our financial year runs from 1 April to 31 March. We agree an annual budget in January each year and also decide how much the annual Precept* should be set at. 

Budget for 2019-20

*Parish and Town Councils are empowered to raise money for their activities through a tax (the Precept) on the town's residents which is collected on their behalf by the District Council, as an addition to the District and County Council Tax. This is then paid to the Town Council in two equal installments.

 

Grants

 

Each year we give grants to worthy local community groups and projects. If you feel that your group could benefit from a small grant from the Town Council then please write to us. We would like to hear about the plans you hope to achieve, how much you are looking for and who would benefit.

 

We consider grant applications at our Finance meetings, which are held every three months. Please first read our policy and, if you would like to apply, complete and return our application form.
