Policies and procedures

Parish Councils have powers to represent and support their local communities. They protect local environments and provide local services and facilities. However, Parish Councils do not have an unlimited power to do whatever they choose. Councils can only act if they have been given a specific power to do so by statute. This means that Councils are set up and controlled by Acts of Parliament.

It is important that Councils work within these statutes so policies and procedures are essential for ensuring that any business is conducted in the correct legal and transparent manner.

Our policies and procedures are set out below.
