Course Details

Town and Parish Councillors are ultimately responsible for the financial performance of their council. This is the time of year when most councils will be looking to the future and setting their budget for the next financial year.

The 3P’s will take delegates through the budget setting process starting with the basics of who will be involved right through to understanding the impact of the council’s decision on the town or parish’s council tax payers. On the way we will identify the plans that are needed to ensure the council and its community can move forward with confidence and understanding.

The session will cover:

P1: identifying the People involved in making the big decisions
P2: formulating the Plans and policies for improvement and forward progress
P3: establishing the process for getting the Precept right for your community

There will be a mix of PowerPoint presentations, workshop and sharing of best practice.

Speakers

Gill Lungley

Clerk and WALC Tutor

Gill has been involved with local councils since the early 1990’s first as a parish councillor and then as the clerk to a variety of parish councils across Worcestershire, where she currently works part-time. Gill holds a BA (Hons) in Business Studies and has achieved the Cert HE in Local Policy Studies (the forerunner to today’s CiLCA qualification) from Cheltenham and Gloucester College. Ongoing CPD has seen her gain the CiLCA 2012 additional requirement so that her councils are able to adopt the General Power of Competence, where eligible. Having worked alongside various trainers for WorcestershireCALC Gill added to her qualifications with PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) to support her in the delivery of her informative training sessions.

Gill has represented Worcestershire as county representative for the Society of Local Council Clerks national executive committee and is a member of the Institute of Local Council Management, ensuring she keeps up to date with personal training and CPD. Gill initially worked for one parish council for 11 years, then took a break of 3 years before returning to council administration and has since worked for another 6 councils across Worcestershire ranging in size from electorates of more than 5,000 to less than 400.

Currently Gill works part-time for a parish council in North Worcestershire and provides training to councillors as well as mentoring new clerks and helping to deliver training for the new CiLCA.
