Official Documents 

There is a lot of information used in the world of parish councils. Some information is required by legislation and some of the information will help residents understand what the Parish Council has to do. The information has been categorised into the headings: Finance and Transparency, Operational Information, Councillor & Staff, Planning and the Complaints procedures. More information and policies can be found by clicking on the different headings. 
The Parish Council is funded through a precept/tax and the income raised 
through its facilities and services. Milton Keynes City Council collect the precept on behalf of GLPC. GLPC sets is annual budget between September and December for the following financial year. 
The council will also review the expenditure required to manage its assets (asset maintenance) over the long term and its medium term forecast finance plan. This allows it to manage and maintain its reserves at an appropriate level. 
The financial Year begins on 1 st April and goes on to 31 st March. An independent internal Auditor will review the internal controls twice a year and report their findings to the Council. An external Audit reviews the approved annual accounts between June and September.

governance statements as approved or noted by the auditors.
