Parish Councils have number of formal duties as well as a range of powers to do other things of their choosing.

The duties are mainly procedural and financial, including the right to raise money through the Precept. This forms a very small part of the local council tax and is used to maintain and improve local services and facilities. Parish Councils must provide a set of accounts at the end of each year which have been externally audited.

The range of services provided include maintenance of rights of way,bus shelters and the provision of allotments etc. All these  services  can either be provided by the Parish Council directly or through other agencies such as local volunteer groups or charities.

Parish councillors have the power to improve the the quality of community life by spending money on things which in their opinion are in the interests of the the parish and its inhabitants. It does not though have the power to act as mediator in disputes between inhabitants of the parish.

Parish Councils are the focal point for local consultation on planning applications,district council strategic planning, schools and roads.

On all these issues Councillors represent the parish views to the district and county councils.
