The Parish Council is the first tier of local government and exists to represent the interests of the parish. In many cases however, the Parish Council’s role is advisory, the final decision resting with the District Council.
There are seven Parish Councillors who are elected every four years. The position is purely voluntary and attracts no payment.
The Parish Council meet six times a year at 7.30pm in the Village Centre on the last Tuesday of odd months (e.g. January, March etc). Planning meetings are arranged as required.
