The Parish Council is the first tier of local government. There are 27 Parish Councils in South Staffordshire, of which Lapley, Stretton & Wheaton Aston is one.
Parish Councils form an important part of the local government system, particularly in rural areas ensuring communities like Lapley, Stretton & Wheaton Aston have a voice. The Parish Council provides a grassroots representation of the community and forms a significant channel of communication to the relevant local authorities and other regional bodies and agencies.
Central Government increasingly recognizes the value of parish councils, who can make decisions and spend money on matters that make a real difference to their local community.
