Budget & Financial Matters

Purse Caundle Parish Council’s income comes from the precept, raised from local council tax payers according to the value of their property and collected by the District Council. A Government grant previously provided through Dorset Council has been phased out since 2013 and has now been completely withdrawn. Our budget is set each year to determine how the council will spend its money, and therefore how much it needs to request via the District Council.
