Each year Clayton Parish Council produces an annual Income and Expenditure statement for the previous 12-month period. In addition, the Council also produces a projected budget for the forthcoming financial year and for planning purposes the years ahead. The 2016/17 budget, as approved at the full Parish Council meeting in January 2016 shows all expected income and expenditure throughout the year.
This allows the Parish Council to effectively plan and manage its financial resources and as a result accurately calculate the precept.
