The role of the Parish Council:
As a tier of local government Ellastone Parish Council is an elected body, with discretionary powers and rights laid down by Parliament to represent and provide services for the community. Press the link below if you would like to find out more about local government:
The Parish Council seeks to act as a focus for local opinion, and provide a way to get things done in a way that is best suited to the local community. The Parish council does not see itself as operating in isolation, achieving far more by being prepared to work constructively with other public bodies and organisations.
Ellastone Parish Council:
- Is consulted on planning applications.
- Has points of contact with principal council services, such as highways, cleansing, parks, elections etc and contributes to the way such services are provided.
- Is represented, collectively with other parish councils, on the Local Strategic Partnership.
- Liaises with other stakeholders operating services within the parish council boundaries.
- Contributes to proposals which may be made to the Secretary of State under the Sustainable Communities Act 2007
