The Parish Council is, at present, made up of seven Councillors, including the Chairman, supported by the Clerk. Until the Localism Act of 2011 Parish Councils were only permitted to do those things where they had the powers spelt out in statute. Under the 2012 Localism Act, the “General Power of Competence” was issued. The intention was to allow eligible councils the power to undertake an activity or incur expenditure without the need to have to identify specific powers. In July 2019 the Parish Council adopted The General Power of Competence. The Council meets in the Village Hall once a month normally 1st Wednesday of the month at 7.35pm. Please check website, parish news or noticeboards for exact date. Villagers are always welcome and time is set aside at every meeting for public discussion.
Please come to a meeting if you have problems that we can help with, or speak to one of the councillors. If you have ideas or suggestions for the village, please bring them to our attention.
Agendas and minutes are available online, as is further information pertaining to the Parish Council and village.
