Alderbury Parish Council
councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact
for anyone concerned with a community issue. They are democratically elected
local authorities and exist in England, Wales and Scotland.
There are over 10,000 local councils in England and Wales, representing the concerns of local residents and providing services to meet local needs. Parish councils have a wide range of powers including looking after community buildings, planning, street lighting, allotments. They also have the power to raise money through council tax.
Local councils are made up of locally elected councillors. They are legally obliged to hold at least one meeting a year. In Alderbury we hold monthly meetings (excluding August) alongside our Annual Parish meeting. All meetings are open to the public and agendas and minutes are found on the notice boards throughout the village as well as on this website.
