Why?

Do you want to do more for our community?

Town, Village and Parish Councillors are an essential element of the ’Big Society’, and have a long tradition of promoting a sense of pride in the local community.

As a Parish Councillor, you could help to look after, and improve, many of the facilities in our parish.

Parish Councils take responsibility for a range of local matters and community needs, such as allotments, playgrounds and the maintenance of local facilities under the Council’s control. Beyond this, they identify, support and manage local project initiatives and can fund grants to local organisations such as youth clubs and charities. Parish councils are consulted by the Borough council over matters such as planning applications in the parish.
