Parish Council - Introduction

Parish Councils are local authorities as defined in the Local Government Act 1972, section 270. They are corporate bodies, and membership is by election for four years. The number of Councillors is determined by the size of the electoral roll of the parish. Councillors are unpaid volunteers and members of the local community. The Council has the power to co-opt members of the public on to the Council, in which case they may serve until the next Council elections.

 

Parish Councils are also able to appoint a Clerk who is an employed member of the Council. Clerks may not take decisions binding on the Council, except where specific matters have been delegated to them either by statute or by the Council.

 

The Parish Council meets on the second Thursday of every month at 7.30pm in the Millennium Hall. All parishioners are very welcome to attend.

 

From April 2020 all Parish Council meetings will be held online during the Covid 19 pandemic. Please contact
