Parish Council

The Parish Council’s area of the website is here to keep you as informed and involved as possible about the past, present, and future activities of the Parish Council which works on behalf of the people of the village of Wendling.

 

Full meetings are held every two months and Planning Meetings are held as and when necessary.  Any parishioner is welcome to come along and hear discussions about current issues.  A public session is held prior to the commencement of each meeting.

 

Parish Councils are the cheapest and least bureaucratic kind of local authority, and in Wendling all the Councillors are independent of any political party.

 

The Councillors are elected for four years and bye-elections may be held to fill vacancies occurring between elections.

Finance

In Wendling, the Parish Precept of £5000 for 2017 is divided by a formula based on the number of properties in Wendling and is collected as part of the Council Tax payment.

 

What powers has the Parish Council got in order to do things?

The small size of our village and the level of the precept is obviously very limiting, but over the years the Parish Council has had considerable input to the provision and maintenance of the village hall, ongoing maintenance of the hedgerows and open spaces.  Notice boards, rights of way, footpaths, and bridleways are all monitored and mostly maintained by the Parish Council. The Council has the power to improve the quality of village life by spending sums of money on things which in it’s opinion, are in the interests of the parish and it’s residents as a whole. Initiating and maintaining this website is one example of this process.
