Finance and Grants

The Parish Council agrees a budget each year at the December Council meeting for the anticipated expenditure in the following financial year from 1 April 1 to March 31. A Statement of Accounts is produced at the end of each year which is audited by an independent auditor. Copies of the budget and statement are available below.

Income is raised through the precept, (payment made by Rackheath householders residents through their Council Tax, collected by Broadland District Council). The Parish Council also receives income from the hire of facilities such as the football pitches, pavilion and bowling green and from grants.

Expenditure is incurred on staff salaries and administration expenses, grass and verge cutting, Churchyard maintenance, emptying litter and dog bins, maintenance of facilities and open space and on grants/donations.

If you wish to apply for a grant or donation from the Parish Council please read our Grants Policy and contact the Parish Clerk
