Governing Documents

The Parish Council has strict protocols that must be followed when it carries out its everyday business on your behalf.

East Ayton Parish Council is responsible for the area within the Parish boundary. Money is raised for the services provided through the precept, which is collected on our behalf by the District Council and is paid to East Ayton Parish Council twice-yearly.

There are very few facilities or services that we must provide by Law, but we can become involved in a wide range of activities.

Financial records are audited (by an independent auditor) on a yearly basis; should any financial rules be "broken" in any given year, it may result in the Parish Council accounts being refused by the auditor and possibly involve individual Councillors being required to repay the money illegally spent.

One of the responsibilities of the Chairman is to make sure the Parish Council does not attempt to do things that are outside their powers.
