Each year a sum of money called a 'precept' is collected through your council tax via Teignbridge District Council. This money is invested back into your community by the Parish Council to improve facilities and services for you and your neighbours. Some duties of the Parish Council which involve financial outgoings include lesiure facilities, parks and open spaces, public lavatories, cemetery & churchyard, bushelters, seats, car parks. To establish the amount required to cover the forseeable expenditure of the Parish for the next financial year a special meeting of the full Parish Council is held each December; before a claim is submitted to TDC in February. Once the District Council give approval, the amount is paid to the Parish by two installments, April and Sept.
Local councils can also apply for grants and loans, and can receive money from rents or leases if they own assets/property.If you have any queries or concerns regarding anything on this page please do not hesitate to contact the Clerk, Kim Ford, firstname.lastname@example.org or 01626 870170.
