Hi Carole.

I recommend the COMA team direct you to where you can find this answer. Just worth pointing out that parish councils are permanent statutory bodies which can raise their own council tax (called a precept) – which can be used to pay all sorts of bills including utility bills – ongoing. Worth thinking about encouraging your community groups to set up parish councils in future so that you don’t have to worry about where the next funding pot is located for some items of spend (see http://www.nalc.gov.uk/our-work/create-a-council ).

Hope this helps,
