Finance

How is Singleton Parish Council funded?

Our funding is allocated by Chichester District Council (CDC) and is taken from the area’s council tax; called an Annual Precept. The income and expenditure for the next financial year are calculated in the form of estimates and this amount is added to residents local council tax and then returned to us in two yearly installments. We inform CDC how much precept we require on an annual basis in January once the budget has been agreed.

The Annual Precept for 2019/20 is set at £15,148.00

The Parish Council felt the increase in the precept for 2018/19 was necessary in order to allow the Parish Council to fulfil its statutory powers together with its increased requirements and duties.

We also apply for grant funding and regularly identify various funding opportunities.
