The end of year auditing process for PCC accounts is now under way. The Annual Governance And Accountability Return (AGAR) has been provided to the appointed external auditors (P K F Littlejohn LLP) and the fully audited AGAR Part 3 & signed external auditor report will be posted on this website by 30 September. PCC is also required to inform the electorate of a single period of 30 working days during which public rights may be exercised, by publishing the relevant Notice (i.e. Notice of Public Rights & Publication of Unaudited Annual Governance & Accountability Return). The relevant dates this year are Monday 10 June to Friday 18 July 2019. Further information can be found here.
Polperro Community Council finances its activities primarily through the Precept (the amount of money it raises from council tax payers in the parish). This is collected by Cornwall Council as part of your Council Tax Bill and you will see the Parish element of Council Tax listed in the “Breakdown of Charges” box on your bill. Polperro Community Council has set its Precept for the current financial year (April 2019 to March 2020) at £77,575, a 8.2% increase over the previous year. The precept amounts to around £2.07 per week for a Band D household.
The Council also receives income from the door-pay systems on the public toilets at Crumplehorn and Fishnabridge, and an estimate of the annual income from these has been used in the formulation of the Precept.
The Council begins its deliberations on the next year’s Precept level from its October meeting onwards and submits its final bid to Cornwall Council after the December meeting.
