The Annual Budget

Mawnan Parish set its annual budget for the upcoming year at the same time the precept is set in December to start on 1st April.

Discussions begin in September/ October each year on the spending priorities that are felt to be most important for the parish in the upcoming year, and how much funding should be made available. This also takes into account how much we have held in general reserves and how much of this we are willing to spend.

Occasionally due to urgent projects or works beyond anticipation it is agreed for extra funding to be added to the budget in year from general reserves.

The budget is reviewed by the Office & Finance Committee every 3 months.

The current summary budget for 2017/18 is available here  –  a line-by-line budget is available on request from the clerk.

The Prime Minister and Coalition Government Ministers have told local authorities to publish local spending data. The Public Sector Transparency Board has been set up to drive an open data agenda. From January 2011 local government spending over £100 must now be published by local authorities. Expenditure below this will not be published but is in the Public Domain and available in the Council Office.
