The Parish Council


There are six councillors and one clerk. Councillors are elected every four years and anyone can stand for election as long as they are a resident of the parish or live within 3 miles of it. Being a Councillor is a voluntary position and done because the people who stand want to try to improve life for their community. They are the first tier of local government and deal with things like supplying and emptying bins, maintenance of the recreation grounds and improving play facilities. These are amongst our "statutory  " duties. On top of this we try to work wih our partners including the Borough and County Councils to deal with any concerns residents might have about things not directly under our control, such as dog mess, traffic problems and policing issues. The Clerk, Kevin Hayes, is the only paid employee of the council and he works 35 hours a month from his home address on the Birmingham Road in Ansley Village.. The clerks role is to ensure the smooth running of the parish council.
