At their meeting in January 2017 the Parish Council will determine the amount of the village precept for the coming fiscal, 2017/18. To assist them in their task, budget projections and previous actuals have been produced and are shown in the table below.Next year will see a significant increase in expenditure with the recruitment of a new clerk who will need to be employed at the going rate, and also a number of services and tasks being devolved from the principal authority that will need to be carried out and paid for at local (Parish Council) level. For some time now Litton Cheney's precept has been considerably lower than other communities of a similar size, and whilst there is a need to raise the precept for the coming year, it is believed it will still represent realistic value for the service received.
By browsing this section of the Parish Council's space on the village website you will find various references to financial and accounting documents that are used to indicate “the state of the nation”. Many of these documents are produced at the behest of the Transparency Code created by the Department for Communities and Local Government and are intended to give local residents sufficient access to information that relates to how the Parish Council is handling public funds.In addition to what is available on this website, information can be found on notice boards including previous meeting minutes and by contacting the Parish Clerk (see home page for contact details). Documents can be made available on request – there is sometimes a charge for this service. If you cannot find the information you require do not hestitate in contacting the Clerk who will be pleased to help.
