As a public body, Woodford cum Membris Parish Council is required to publish its accounts and to provide access to bills, receipts and other documents relating to the accounts.
Every year the Council prepares a budget which shows expected income and expenditure. The Parish receives the bulk of its income (over 85%) from the “Precept”, an amount included by Daventry District Council in your Council Tax.
Other income comes from hire fees for village venues, burial fees, allotment rentals and grants. Last year the Parish Council spent over £240,000 on local services and amenities.
