Parish Councils are funded by the precept. Putley Parish Council prepares a budget for each year which will cover all necessary expenditure. This precept is collected by the County via Council Tax.
The role of a Parish Council is to improve the quality of community life for their parish and its inhabitants. They can:

  • Give views, on behalf of their community, on planning applications and other proposals that affect the parish.
  • Undertake projects and schemes that benefit local residents.
  • Work in partnership with other bodies to achieve benefits for the parish.
  • Alert relevant authorities to problems that arise or work that needs to be undertaken.
  • Help the other tiers of local government keep in touch with their local communities.
