The funding for Parish Councils is allocated by the District Council and is taken from the area’s council tax; this is called an annual precept. The income and expenditure for the next financial year are calculated in the form of estimates and this amount is added to the local council tax and then returned to the parishes in two half-yearly instalments.
Quality Parish status increases the level of responsibility and therefore the proportion of funds allocated to that Council. Hempnall Parish Council has obtained Quality Status which will opens up a route to even more benefits and grants to help us promote a better lifestyle in the Parish. For more information on Quality Status click here.
The Parish Council operates in accordance with financial regulations based upon national guidelines.
