Shaping parish decisions – the Parish Council

The Parish Council exists to help the parish to be run for the good of all. The Parish council will discuss the matters that you raise, and feed the results of those discussions back to you. As the aims state, “the best decisions are collegiate” – that means, decisions taken with the involvement and consensus of as wide a group as possible.

Full aims, membership and procedures of the parish council »

Please offer feedback and comment about every area of parish life to any of the Parish Council members, who will be eager to hear it. Hopefully there is more than one name that you recognise on the list!
