Local decision making
While the Parish Council is limited in the decisions it can make, it is often consulted with or puts forward representations on a wide range of local issues, including transport, rural needs, planning, policing and national park issues. The Parish Council is a useful first port of call, knowing exactly who to contact and how to get things done.
