Aynho Parish Council

Role and Responsibilities

The aim of The Parish Council is to maintain and improve the quality of life for those who live or work in the Parish of Aynho. As the first level of government the council has certain duties, powers and responsibilities to help in this purpose and works as well as it can with South Northants Council, Northamptonshire County Council, the Northamptonshire Police Authority and other relevant organisations, all of which have a direct impact on the quality of life in our parish. The council is supported in its work by Northamptonshire County Association of Local Councils (NCALC), an organisation which offers training and advice to parish councils and village halls.

In practical terms the council owns and maintains street lamps, playground equipment, bus shelters and benches. It has responsibility for grass cutting and shares responsibility for general tidiness and litter clearance with District and County Councils. It is consulted on all planning applications but can only make observations on these. Its views are frequently sought on a whole range of policy issues by the organisations listed above and many others.

Income and Expenditure

The council spends approximately £28,000 per year. This is made up of a precept of £25,920 for 2020/21 financial year and the remainder from grants and donations. The accounts are managed by the RFO (Responsible Financial Officer) and audited internally and externally every year. All payments are agreed at Council meetings. The accounts are available for inspection immediately before audit in April each year.
