Funding and Accounts

How we are funded

We are not funded via Council Tax but receive the majority of our money via National Park Grant from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). The balance of our budget is from income, grants and fees and charges

2015/16 Budget

The Authority approves the budget annually and throughout the year monitoring of income and expenditure is undertaken to ensure that spending remains under control.  At year-end the Authority receives a report on the financial performance and from this the Annual Statement of Accounts is produced.

Local Spending Data

View local spending data*

In June 2010 the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government wrote to local authorities in England, committing us to publishing items of spending over £500 by January 2011.  With effect from 1 August 2014, we will be publishing details of all items of expenditure.  This includes all Government Procurement Card (GPC) spend.

The data we've published under 'Local Spending Data' excludes:
*    payments to individuals (staff) paid through payroll
*    payments to HM Revenue and Customs relating to VAT and payroll
*    pension related payments
We have included invoice and grant payments to individuals, but have replaced personal data with the words 'Redacted Personal Data'.

The information is produced in two versions. The PDF file is an easy to read version. The CSV file allows the user to read and manipulate the data as they require.
