What is Crowle Parish Council?

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.

They:

  • 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.
