Decisions made under delegated powers

In accordance with the Openness of Local Government Regulations 2014, a record of any decisions made by officers of the Parish Council under delegated powers will be published on this page.

Under the Council’s Financial Regulations, adopted 9 March 2016, the Clerk, in conjunction with the Chairman of Council, or Chairman of the appropriate committee, has delegated authority to incur expenditure on revenue items below £500.  The Clerk also has delegated authority to incur expenditure in cases of extreme risk to Council services (eg to effect necessary repairs) up to a limit of £500, and to authorise the payment of items – (1) if payment is necessary to avoid a charge to interest under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 and the due date for payment is before the next scheduled meeting of Council; (2) where expenditure on the item is authorised by Council as a continuing contract or obligation; and (3) to make fund transfers within the Council’s banking arrangements.

There are currently no other powers delegated to officers of the Council on a standing basis.
