WHAT THE PARISH COUNCIL DOES
The Parish Council is responsible for spending £40,000
of your Council Tax each year.
It influences and makes decisions about many aspects of village life including:
Play Areas, Recreation Grounds, Open Spaces and the Common,
Footpaths and Pavements, Street Lighting, Bus Shelters, Conservation,
Strategic Planning and Local Applications, Aircraft Noise
and many other matters.
WORKING AS A COUNILLOR
There are seven Council Meetings per year, each lasting for 2 - 2½ hours
which are always on the third Tuesday evening of the month.
In addition, there is either a Committee Meeting or Working Party
in those months when there is no full Council meeting.
Councillors all want to take part in their village, to make improvements
and ensure it remains a safe and pleasant place in which to live.
