Parish Council

The council has the power to raise money through taxation known as the precept. The precept is the Parish Council’s share of the council tax. The precept demand goes to the billing authority, the district council, which collects the tax for the parish council. Parish Councils make all kinds of decisions on issues that affect the local community. Probably the most common topics that Parish Councils get involved with are planning matters, crime prevention, managing open spaces and campaigning for and delivering better services and facilities.

Village Improvement Group

The Village Improvement Group is an informal working group of Councillors who work together to explore ways of improving the physical image and appearance of the village by using funding grants.  The working group makes recommendations to full council meetings where the decision is then taken by the Parish Council acting as the corporate body.
