Parish Precept Grants
At the August 12th 2011 Parish Council Meeting it was resolved that the Parish Council would use the following procedure for this years requests from village organisations for a precept:
- The organisation to advise the Clerk ten days in advance of the next Parish Council meeting that they wish to make a request. This meeting is on September 16th 2011 and so such requests need to be made by September 6th ~ please note that the actual details of the request are not required until the meeting on September 16th.
- Any requests received on or by September 6th will become an agenda item for the meeting of the 16th September Parish Council Meeting and this will provide the opportunity for either a verbal or written presentation [or both] to be made by those applying.
- Councillors will discuss the requests that have been made at the next Parish Council meeting on October 14th 2011. These requests will be agenda items in order to facilitate any comments from residents on them. The decision will then be made to either approve that the request be carried forward to the next Parish Council meeting or not.
- At the Parish Council Meeting on November 11th the actual sums of money to be precepted for those requests brought forward to this meeting will be agreed.
Please note that the Parish Council welcomes requests from previous recipients of precepts, those whose requests have previously been refused and from groups / organisations who have not previously requested a precept. Any grants agreed will be paid during the 2012/2013 financial year ~ generally in April.
