SGPC Finance & Governance Archive

Our SPGC Finance & Governance Archive contains key Financial & Governance documents relating to the Sibford Gower Parish Council.

This Archive is arranged with a separate page for each financial year (1st April – 31st March), sorted in financial year order, with the latest year first.

For each financial year, the documents (where available) are arranged under the following headings:

  • Budget & Precept
    Our Budgeting process for each financial year commences in the previous Autumn, when the Council develops a draft Budget. This draft is discussed, amended where appropriate, and approved at a Parish Council Meeting in December or January. Our Precept Notification, which is based on our approved Budget, is then submitted to Cherwell District Council by late January.

  • In Year Proposals
    Our annual Donations & Grants Proposal, and any other relevant financial proposals made during the financial year, are included under this heading.

  • Year End
    Our Annual Accounts, and any other relevant documents relating to our financial Year End on 31st March, are included under this heading.

  • Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR)
    Each year Local Authorities are required to prepare and submit or publish an Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR) to report on their financial and governance conduct for the financial year just ended. This Annual Return, and other related documents, are usually completed within the 3 months following Year End, and are included under this heading.
