Where the money comes from

Galleywood Parish Council is funded by the precept, a local tax that is collected by Chelmsford City Council at the same time it collects the council tax money for Essex County Council, the Police and the Fire Service.

The parish council precepts annually, and this money goes to provide services and facilities in the Village. Your contribution to these services works out at £54 per household per the 2016-2017 year.

Where the money goes

You can see more information about how this money is spent by clicking on the tabs above. To see even more detail, you can click on the monthly cheque reports or income and expenditure reports in the finance committee meetings. A summary from the last audited accounts is shown below:

 2014-2015 Income and expenditure

In 2015-2016, the Parish Council's additional income was drawn from the Parish Council Reserves. The reserves allow the Parish Council to put aside money, typically for future capital projects and emergencies. (Such as the refurbishment of the Public Conveniences or to replace lost or damaged village assets.)

The Parish Council spends your money providing the Facilities and Services shown on this website.

The Parish Council constantly reviews the expenditure it makes on the Facilities and Services it provides and is keen to receive requests or comments from the residents of Galleywood by email or by attendance at one of our meetings which are open to the public.
