The Government under the provision of the Local Authorities (Members' Allowances) (England) Regulations 2003 has introduced a system of Council Allowances for elected members. (Co-opted members are not currently able to claim an allowance). Individual Councillors may claim all or part of the set allowance for the financial year.
To work effectively the Parish Council is divided into three Committees, Policy, Planning and Recreation Committees. Committee meetings are normally held once each month on the first, second and fourth Tuesday of the month and the full Council meets on the third Tuesday of each month. All meetings are held at the Parish Council Offices, Thames Avenue.
