The Parish Council
How does a Parish Council work?
We are the first tier of local government and are here to support the needs of the local community.
We have the advantage of being members of the community and try to stay in close contact with parishioners to understand their concerns and needs.
Parish councils meet regularly to address their responsibilities. Apart from councillors, each parish council has a clerk who provides administration for the council.
Parish councils are responsible for managing their own budgets. They are financed through the precept, an amount of money calculated as an estimate for the coming financial year and collected as part of your Council Tax. This money is used to improve facilities and services for local people. Parish councils can also apply for other funding, such as grants and awards.
Parish councils can extend their powers to improve the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of their community as long as it is within the law.
Parish councils actively encourage input from residents on what the community needs, so we can work to deliver the communities requirements.
