The Parish Council maintains a set of policies and procedures to help carry its duties out effectively and to comply with regulations. These documents are reviewed and updated where required.
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.
All the Councils finances and procedures are fully audited annually by an external party.

2021-22 Financial Year
Please Note: The Parish Council's statement of accounts will not be externally audited on account of the Council's self certified exemption status, unless either a request for an opportunity to question the auditor about the Council's accounting records under S26(2( or an objection under S27(1) of the Act results in the involvement of the local auditor.
2019-20 Financial Year
The Council Tax Precept
The precept is the parish council’s share of the council tax. The precept demand goes to the billing authority, Derbyshire Dales District Council, which collects the tax for the Parish Council. The 'Precept' is converted into an amount per Council Tax Band that is added onto the Council Tax bill. Income and expenditure for the next financial year are calculated in the form of estimates.
Parish and town councils can apply for other funding such as grant and funding awards, but they do not receive funds direct from central government as principal authorities do.
All documents are made available in PDF form unless otherwise stated. Copies of are available from the Clerk upon request.
