About the Parish Council

Councillors give their time voluntarily as it is an unpaid role. By becoming a parish councillor you become someone your community will look to for help, guidance and support – a community leader with the power to influence decision, work alongside other agencies and local government, create a strategy and deliver plans for the benefit of the parish you live in.

COUNCILLORS

The Role of a Councillor

 

They are elected to represent the interest of the local community as a whole and promote a harmonious local environment. 

 

Local (Parish) Councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact for anyone concerned with a community issue.

 

The term 'Local Council' is synonymous with ' Parish Council, 'Town Council' and 'Community Council'.

 

Parish Councils are made up of locally elected Councillors. They are legally obliged to hold at least four meetings a year.  We meet on a monthly cycle (except August) to discuss council business and hear from local residents.  Borough and County Councillors regularly attend parish meetings and report at the Annual Parish meeting. Councillors are expected to attend meetings on a regular basis.​

Councillors must abide by a Code of Conduct, a set of rules on how Councillors are expected to behave. They must also declare their financial interests in the parish.
