The Parish Council:
Parish Councils are the first tier of local government and the closest to the community they serve. They are elected bodies with discretionary powers and rights to represent their communities and provide services for them. The number of councillors is fixed by the local District or Borough Council.
Willington is served by 11 parish councillors and 1 clerk. The Clerk is a paid officer of the council and it is the Clerk's responsibility to action decisions made by the Parish Council.
Our committees have specific tasks and can have delegated powers. Willington Parish Council currently has four committees:
- Finance - meet 4 times a year, July, November, January, March/April
