Council Finances

Your Parish Council receives a sum of money each year from the Borough Council, this is known as the precept and is paid by all council tax payers. Other revenues are gained from allotment rents.

The Parish Council sets its budget each year and is responsible for recreation and playpark ground and equipment maintenance, flower beds, hanging baskets.

We are not responsible for the upkeep of the roads and pavements in the village, the Borough Council is responsible for these issues and comments should be addressed to Streetpride. We can pass on concerns but have no powers to effect maintenance or repairs.

Todwick Parish Plan

The Todwick Parish Plan 2011 was published in December 2011.


Back in 2004, Todwick Parish Council (TPC) drew up a Parish Plan. Part of it generated useful statistics, such as how many residents/households we have in Todwick, what the age groups were, etc. There was also a lot of information about what the residents at that time wanted - what they liked or disliked, what services or activities they wanted or needed, and so on.

The TPC used that document to shape its decision making and, as a result, there have been some significant developments over the last few years. For example;

2007 saw a major refurbishment and extension of our Village Hall costing a third of a million pounds and just before that the building of a Church Hall in the church grounds.

Both of these buildings now offer a very wide range of activities designed for all ages and which also successfully attract people from well outside Todwick.

2009 brought a £40,000 re-design of the kiddies play area on our recreation ground, which was very well received, together with an overhaul of our current sports pavilion to help "bridge the gap" until more modern facilities are available.

What next?

Feedback from the 2011 Todwick Parish Plan Questionnaire sent out to every Todwick household earlier this year has enabled a new Parish Plan to be published. The first Parish Plan Newsletter gives details of actions that are being taken. There will be further Newsletters as developments take place.
