What does the Parish Council do?
The Parish Council is the third tier authority within the Local Government Framework influencing, where necessary, issues affecting higher level County and District Authorities. In the case of Plaistow and Ifold Parish Council, this means West Sussex County Council and Chichester District Council. You will have noticed in your Council Tax demand that you make a small contribution each year towards Parish Council spending. Making sure that all work is competitively priced, that money is used by the Parish Council to provide services in the village including:
- maintenance of the village green and pond area
- monitoring of footpaths, bridleways and highways
- making grants to support local groups and organisations
- comments to the Chichester District Planning Committee on planning applications
- influencing policy decisions taken by Chichester DC and WSCC which affect the village.
If you would like to know more then please feel free to come along to our meetings. For further information about the Powers and Duties of Local Councils go to the National Association of Local Councils website – www.nalc.gov.uk
