The Parish Council is made up of a six councillors who meet every month (apart from August) and is here to serve the local residents of Crowhurst.
The earliest mention of Crowhurst was in 771AD and it is also mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086AD). Crowhurst Manor was built by Walter de Scotney in the 12th century, the ruins of which can still be seen next to the Church.
The Council meets in November to set the budget for the coming year. Councillors look at each budget item taking into account any known or anticipated expenditure, as well as any commitments or things that are needed in the village over the longer term.
The Council has a revenue budget which covers its day to day spending, and it also keeps Reserves, which are needed to cover expenditure on future projects, for example renewing the play equipment. The total amount needed by the Parish Council forms the level of the Annual Precept, which is part of your Council Tax and can be found on your Council Tax bill. The amount for 2021/22 is £xx. Our accounts show you how we have spent that money or retained it in reserves for future projects.
