PARISH COUNCIL

Parish Councillors


A parish council is the level of elected government that is closest to the community, with the district authority above it in the hierarchy. Parish councils have no true equivalent in urban areas. Being close to the community, parish councils are very often the first place people will go with concerns or ideas. For this reason they play a vital part in village life, making decisions on behalf of the people in the parish. A parish councillor must have a passion for making a difference within their local community, recognising the needs of the young and the elderly in equal measure while taking into consideration the legal boundaries in which they work.

The number of councillors making up a parish council varies. Their work is entirely voluntary; no Councillor receives any payment for attending the meetings.

Details of the current Councillors their responsibilities and their Clerk are included below.
