What is a Parish Council?
A parish council is an elected local authority. It is the tier of local government that is closest to the people. The Parish Council is not a registered charity, a voluntary organisation or affiliated with the church.
Parish 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. The Parish Council helps provide local services and facilities, taking decisions that form the policy of the parish council.
