ABOUT THE COUNCIL
A Parish or Town Council
is an elected local authority. It is the tier of
local government which is closest to the people. It is not a voluntary
organisation, a charity or something to do with the Church.
Councillors have an active interest and concern for their local
community. They represent local people and work in partnership with
them and others when necessary. They help facilitate the provision of
local services and facilities and take decisions that form the policy
of the Council.
Councillors are not paid and have to abide by a local government code
of conduct and declare their financial interests in the Parish.
Councillors must also declare a personal or prejudicial interest in any
matter under discussion at a parish council meeting.
The range of powers Councils have are many and varied and include the
purchase of land and buildings, providing and maintaining village
greens, the provision of recreational facilities, crime prevention
measures, and traffic calming.
The work of the Parish Council is funded by a precept collected with
the Council tax.
