The Parish Council budget process starts in August each year when the Parish Clerk begins preparing a draft budget. These are then reviewed with the Chairman and in September/October meeting agree a draft budget. The budget is passed to the Finance & General Committee which in November reviews the amalgamated budget and agrees the draft reserve levels. The committee agrees a recommended budget which is presented to the January Parish Council meeting where the budget is agreed and precept is set.
The Parish Council receives the majority of its income through the precept; an annual sum of money collected with the Council Tax by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council. The precept is set by the council in January each year and for 2023/24 is £XX which amounts to a Band D rate of £XX. The rest of the Council’s income is from rental income, cemetery fees, grants, event income and bank interest.
