How parish councils work

Parish councils are statutory bodies. Members (councillors) are elected for a term of four years and councils are funded principally by an annual precept. Income and expenditure for the next financial year is calculated in the form of estimates. The net amount (the precept) is added to council tax, collected by the district council and paid to parish in April. Parish and town councils can apply for other funding such as grant and funding awards, but they do not receive funds direct from central government

Our Council

The Parish Council meet on the first Wednesday of the month in the Function Room at St Andrews Community Centre, with committee and other meetings held throughout the month, to discuss ongoing issues around the village.

These meetings are advertised on the Parish Council notice board at the Coop and on the website. All members of the public are welcome to attend these meetings and speak to the council during public question time for fifteen minutes at the start of the meeting (Please check the meeting start time, shown on the meeting agenda, as they may vary dependent on the size of the agenda).
