All Parish & Town Councils are statutory consultees in the Planning Process. The Planning Authority for our Parish is Telford & Wrekin Council.

The Planning Committee often meet to discuss planning and development matters within the parish and strategic documents.

All local councils have a duty to set a budget which will represent the aims and objectives of the council. This is called a precept and is collected on our behalf by TWC from the residents as part of their Council Tax.

An Asset Register is available as it part of the end of year audit and governance paperwork.

All Parish & Town Councils have a series of policies and procedures which govern how the Council is run, this forms part of the requirements of the Transparency Code.

At the Annual General Meeting of the Council, held annually in May, the Council agrees a schedule of meetings for the year.

All agendas and minutes are available. At the start of each full council meeting there is a public session where residents are welcome to raise any matter with the Councillors.
