Parkrun - NALC Consultation PC4-17

The DCLG has published a consultation on conserving the free use of public parks. The government is proposing to introduce legislation which would put it beyond doubt that local authorities, including parish councils, cannot charge parkrun or junior parkrun for the use of public parks.

NALC believes that the decision as to whether to levy such charges for use of such recreation facilities should be made by parish councils themselves.

It has asked for members' views which should be submitted to Jessica by 1700 hrs on Wednesday 28th June 2017 .

The government consultation paper itself can be found here: Running free- Government Consultation Paper

Governance & Accountability for Smaller Authorities in England - A Practitioner's Guide

This Guide is issued by the Joint Panel on Accounting Guidance (JPAG), and jointly published by the Society of Local Council Clerks, the National Association of Local Councils and the Association of Drainage Authorities

JPAG has approved some minor amendments to the wording of the guide. The content is not greatly changed, but a minor error affecting Parish Meetings has been corrected and some of the explanations in Part 5 have been made clearer.

The 2017 edition of the Guide applies to the statutory reporting of the financial year 2017/18. However, JPAG has authorised the early adoption of the Guide for 2016/17 on a voluntary basis. The decision whether to do so will rest with individual smaller authorities.
