Each year the Parish Council raises monies by way of the Council Tax which is collected through Preston City Council and appears on your Council Tax Bill if you are a resident of this parish. The monies are used to provide a range of services for the benefit of residents and are accounted for in the Parish Councils accounting systems. These records are audited locally in the first instance and then also by an independently appointed auditor who signs off the Annual Return for each year. Notices are placed on our notice boards when the audit has been completed and gives residents an opportunity to view the accounts should they so desire. The Parish Council are now required to publish the Annual Return and certain information on its web site as below. Although not statutorily required and in addition the end of year Statement of Accounts and Expenditures are also published for resident information.
