HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

It is with great sadness that we heard of the death of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, yesterday whilst at Windsor Castle.

We have entered a period of National Mourning and this will continue until 8am on the day following the funeral.

Due to current restrictions, we have been advised not to open a Book of Condolence.  However, there is an opportunity for you to include a message in an online Book of Condolence which has been opened. This is the link:  Send a message of condolence | The Royal Family.

Union Flags are to be flown at half mast.

We will update this message with further information as we are made aware of details released from Buckingham Palace.

We feel sure that you will join with Ercall  Magna Parish Council in sending deepest sympathy to HM The Queen and all Members of the Royal Family.

Ercall Magna Parish Council is the largest rural parish in Telford & Wrekin and it represents the communities in Roden, Ellerdine, Rowton and High Ercall.

Details of the agendas and minutes are available on this website.

There are 12 Parish Councillors and they are elected every four years.

Meetings take place every month (except August).

If you are interested in the role and work of a Parish Councillor, please do attend a meeting or contact the Clerk for more information.

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.
