Parish Council Finances
Under the new Transparency for Small Councils initiative, we are required to upload financial information about the Council’s finances. The Financial regulations, updated versions of the budget and spend to date will be available points throughout the year. Details of spending each month can be found on the agenda and minutes for each meeting.
Brington Parish Council has set the precept for the year 2019/20 at £20,680. This represents an increase of 10% over the previous and is intended to allow for inflation and for the potential burden of an increase in responsibilities for parish councils, brought about by the organisational change of local govenment in Northamptonshire.
The annual accounts for the year 2018/19 have been audited and relevant information can be found below. The previous years accounts are lower down on the page.
