Committees

The Full Council delegates its services and duties to four Committees. The Full Council oversees these Committees and gives them the authority to make decisions, provide budgets for their delegated duties and make recommendations to the Full Council to make decisions that it is not in the power of the Committee to make.button1

Elections take place every four years. The timescales, advertising and process of elections is governed by a statutory procedure. All candidates have to be proposed and seconded by electors of the parish.

If an existing Councillor post becomes vacant, the vacancy is advertised for a fixed period of time and – unless ten electors have requested a poll – the vacancy is filled by co-option at a subsequent council meeting.
