Regulations as agreed and reviewed from time to time. The Clerk is designated as the

The Parish Council’s main source of income is the precept; the main council considers
at what level to set this annual levy and monitors the council’s spending. The precept
forms part of every parishioners Council Tax bill. It is the duty of the council to set the
correct monetary amount of the precept necessary, to enable the Parish Council to fulfil
its commitments. During the annual budgetary review, the council aim to retain or
increase services with a minimum precept increase.
