The funding for parish councils is allocated by the district council and is taken form the area's council tax; this is called an annual precept.

The income and expenditure for the next financial are calculated in the form of estimates and this is added to the local council tax and then returned to the parishes in two half-yearly instalments.

Parish Council can also apply for UK grants and funding EU money under objectives 1 and 2.

The Vital villages programme is run jointly by the National Association of Local Councils and the Countryside Agency.  There are four types of grant available form this scheme with  total budget of £48 million.

Quality Parish status increases the level of responsibility and therefore the proportion of fund allocated to that Council.  Our Council is considering seeking quality status which will open up a route to even more benefits and grants to help us promote a better lifestyle in the Parish.
