PARISH COUNCIL WEBSITE
Parish Councils in England have a number of basic responsibilities in making the lives of local communities more comfortable, many of which are often taken for granted. Essentially these powers fall within three main categories: representing the whole electorate within the parish; delivering services to meet local needs; and striving to improve quality of life in the parish.

WHAT DO THE REPRESENTATIVES
There are around 10,000 community, parish and town councils in England and Wales; They are corporate bodies and local authorities. They have a powerful voice to represent local people.
Parish councils are the part of local government closest to the people. They serve the smallest area and are responsible for the most local of matters. Very importantly, these councils can "precept" - raising a sum collected with the council tax each year to improve facilities and services for local people.
Community, parish and town councillors represent the people living in their local area at the closest level to the community. When decisions are being made they are there to put your views across.
