The Parish Council is a corporate body, an elected tier of local government, that has been granted powers by Parliament including the important authority to raise money through taxation, called the precept. The Council plays a vital part in representing the interests of the community it serves and improving the quality of life and the local environment. It acts as an advisory agency for planning matters, road safety and other functions of local government. The Parish Council is responsible on behalf of the Parish for the land owned by the Parish which includes the village green, the allotments and the recreation ground.
