Budget of Haydon Parish Council

In November of each year the Parish Council holds a meeting to discuss the budget for the following financial year, (which runs from the beginning of April to the end of March).

A draft budget is drawn up by the Clerk, which is then discussed and/or amended at the Parish Council meeting in December. Once it has been approved a precept is set for the next financial year, and requested from Northumberland County Council. This is deducted from residents’ council tax. (insert info on how much this is)
