Crowle Parish Council (CPC).
CPC is part of the civil administration in Worcestershire and provides a statutory tier of local government closest to the residents.
- We have nine elected councillors who meet for full Council Meetings every two months – other sub-groups (see below) meet as necessary and report back to council.
- Elections are held every four years.
- CPC is part of the network of parish councils who are an essential part of the structure of local democracy and have a vital role in acting on behalf of the communities they represent.
- Give views, on behalf of the community, on planning applications and other proposals that affect the parish.
- Undertake projects and schemes that benefit local residents.
- Work in partnership with other bodies to achieve benefits for the parish.
- Alert relevant authorities to problems that arise or work that needs to be undertaken.
- help the other tiers of local government keep in touch with their local communities.
- Parish Councils have a wide range of legal duties including abiding by Financial Regulations – maintaining required Standards of Accountability – works within the set Code of Conduct for local authorities.
- Openness and Transparency are paramount.
