parish Council

What is a Parish Council?

It is a statutory local authority set up under the Local Government Act 1972. It operates in the area of a defined civil parish and is made up of councillors elected by the electors of the parish. Every year the council elects one of them to be the Chairman of the council. The council has a Clerk who is a paid officer who organises meetings and helps to carry out the council's decisions. The Clerk does not vote or make decisions; that is the role of the councillors. The Parish Council is accountable to the electors of the parish. Elections to parish councils are held every four years.
