What does your council do?
Planning, highways, transport and traffic, community safety, housing, street
lighting, allotments, cemeteries, playing fields, community centers, litter, war
memorials, seats and shelters, rights of way – these are some of the issues
that concern parish government.
Central Government is encouraging local
councils to deliver more services and play a greater part in their communities.
For example your council could provide or give financial support for:
an evening bus taking people to the nearest town
affordable housing to rent
redecorating the community center
a teenagers’ drop-in club
a summer festival
equipment for a children’s activity group
transport to hospital.
Projects like these may be a challenge and need hard work and commitment
– but they are achievable.
