Vale parish accounts and 2023 budget published

Wed 08 Mar 2023

Details of how the Vale Douzaine needs to raise more than £650,000 for 2023 and what it will be spent on have been published today and electors and ratepayers are invited to a parish meeting on Wednesday 22 March to approve the accounts for last year and authorise this year's proposed expenditure.

Maintenance of the playground at Les Amarreurs is expected to cost £15,000 this year

The bulk of the proposed expenditure, just under £393,000, is for collecting household refuse. This sum is based on a competitive tender with the contractor but savings from previous years mean that it has been possible to partly subsidise the 2023 rate.

The other significant area of expenditure – a little over £250,000 – is on parochial administration, including upkeep of the cemeteries, street lighting and maintaining the playground at Les Amarreurs. The details are in the download section at the bottom of this page.

A further area of expenditure is requested by the Rector and Churchwardens, who are seeking a total of £22,807 towards maintenance and repairs of the church buildings. However, because some earlier requested expenditure is no longer required, a balance of £4,500 is available, bringing this year's requirement down to £18,307.

More detail is available in the publication, printed in La Gazette Officialle this morning, in the downloads section at the bottom of the page.

  • Parish accounts have also been released for last year and are available here.
  • The parish meeting to discuss all this will be held at the Douzaine Room at 7.30pm on Wednesday 22 March.
