A parish council is a civil local authority found in England and is the lowest, or first, tier of local government.
Parish Council activities fall into three main categories: representing the local community, delivering services to meet local needs, and improving quality of life and community well being.
Every meeting is open to the public, who are encouraged to attend, except for those items where the Council formally resolves to exclude the public and press on the grounds that publicity would be prejudicial to the public interest. This would have to be due to the confidential nature of the business. This latter also applies to any sub-committee of the Parish Council.
Did you know that the public are welcome to attend our Full Council monthly meetings and our fortnightly Planning Committee meetings? Come along and discuss your community matters.
Agenda items should be notified to the Clerk at least 7 days before a meeting.
Agendas and minutes of each meeting are published on this website.
