The Parish Council, which is the most local level of government, works closely with the District and County Councils. Maintenance and other work may be delegated to the Parish Council by the County and District Councils.
Most of the Parish Council’s expenditure goes on staff costs, maintaining its assets and keeping the Village clean and in good order. Much time is spent in exercising whatever pressure it can on higher authorities for planning, highways and traffic control – to deal with issues affecting the quality of life of residents.
A Neighbourhood Plan prepared by the Council was approved by a referendum in February 2017. In addition to Planning Policies it includes a series of Community Objectives intended to enhance the community.
