Precept, Accounts & Donations


Each year the Council determines the level of finances it requires for the forthcoming financial year. The Clerk prepares a draft budget for consideration by the Council, usually at its January meeting, but this can be done earlier if circumstances necessitate. Members of the Council are fully aware of the need to be prudent and the budget is considered very carefully. When the amount of finance required is determined, the County Council is requested to precept that amount on behalf of the Community Council.

Mostyn, like all other Councils is subject to stringent Audit. This is done in two stages. The first by the Council’s Internal Auditors, JDH Business Services of Mold. The second stage is undertaken by the Auditor General for Wales. The Auditors reports have to be considered by the Council and their availability for inspection published.

Applications for Financial Assistance

Each year the Council considers applications for Financial Assistance. Understandably the Council can be inundated with applications, the majority of which are for worthy causes. In the circumstances the Council formulated a policy whereby, in the main, grants are restricted to organisations from within the community or those which may have a link with the community or its residents. There are a number of vibrant organisations within the Community which provide a valuable service and the Council are keen to help those organisations which help themselves. Applications are normally considered once a year with applications to be received by mid December.  The relevant form is available from the Clerk. Any organisation making application must have its own bank account and the Council cannot make grants to an individual.
