Whilst the Parish Council meets every two months, Parish Councillors are continually working on matters (outside of meetings) for the benefit of the Parish and welcome any comments you may have.
Parish Councillors may be contacted on a variety of matters concerning the Parish such as planning applications, condition of roads, untidy sites, community schemes, flooding matters, street lighting and transport.
The funds available to the Parish Council are raised through the precept, which is collected by the District Council in the Community Tax. For the financial year 2016/2017, the Parish Council precept was fixed at £10.110.
The Parish Council is also consulted on a variety of issues by South Derbyshire District Council, Derbyshire County Council and the Government. These include the Local Development Framework, cycle routes, the development of Air Transport at EMA, the renovation works at Monks Bridge, Toyota Liaison Committee, Derby Airfield, the list is virtually endless.
The Parish Council has adopted the Model Publication Scheme under the Freedom of Information Act 2008 which lists information held by the Council and how it can be obtained.
