Parish Council

Syd Smith, Clerk to Helpston Parish Council……. e-mail: helpstonpc@hotmail.co.uk

HELPSTON PARISH COUNCIL: 

Serves this Parish as the tier of Local Government below the City Council. It reviews all the local planning applications and helps to lead and develop the village community with a Community Action Plan. It also arranges regular activities such as the annual Litter / Rubbish pick and will help groups to initiate activities connected with special occasions. It has powers to fund some village club’s own special projects using either Section 106/POIS/CIL (building levies) or Section 137 (budgeted Parish tax from the precept).

The Parish Council usually meets on the first Monday of each month in the Village Hall. Agendas and minutes of meetings are always displayed in the Parish Council’s own notice board outside the Post Office.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the meetings which begin promptly at 7:30pm.

Agendas are prepared by the Clerk after discussion with the Chairman. If a member of the public wishes to see an item on the agenda they must first discuss the issue with a PARISH COUNCILLOR who can then invite the Chairman to consider including it on the Agenda.

Members of the public may raise any matter at the beginning of every meeting under the item “Public Participation” (when the meeting is adjourned and becomes a “Public Meeting”) but cannot take part in the formal Parish Council meeting (which is a meeting of the elected Parish Councillors).

If anyone would like to know more about becoming a Parish Councillor or what the Council does, please do contact the Clerk.
