Chearsley Parish Council About Us

The Parish Council is an elected body in the first tier of local government.  Other tiers, known as principal councils or authorities, have many legal duties to deliver services such as education, housing, town and country planning, transport, environmental health and social services.  Local Councils have the legal power to take action, but they have very few duties and greater freedom to choose what action to take.  The can play a vital part in representing the interests of the community it serves and improving the quality of life and the local environment.  Furthermore, they can influence decision makers and can, in many cases, deliver services to meet local needs.

Some of the issues that concern parish government are community safety, housing, street lighting, litter, war memorials, seats and shelters, rights of way and some aspects of planning and highways.
