The final finance report for 2017-18 is now available pending the external audit next month. You can see the report below showing how the precept has been spent, along with spending from other money obtained as grants. The report also shows balances and movements on the parish’s reserve accounts.
There is a general feeling on the council that whilst it’s important that we maintain safe reserves, we also have a duty to ensure the parish’s money is put to work. At the moment, in my personal view at least, reserves are unnecessary high, and we will be considering spending from reserves where appropriate and agreed by the council.
There is more information on the Year End Reporting page relating to documents prepared for the external auditors.
If there’s a blank space below and you don’t see the report, try refreshing the page.
