A View on the Working of the Parish Council

Parish Council : A Personal View : the first level of democratic government; apolitical.

The Parish Council can, and does, do many things –

  1. Planning applications – the PC is a statutory consultant on all planning applications made within the parish. Recent examples have been a barn conversion – supported; construction of duck rearing units – opposed; wind farm cabling – many concerns.
  2. Broadband – trying to get a better Broadband service throughout the parish.
  3. Mains Drainage – working with Anglian Water to provide an opportunity for properties to be connected to a new mains drainage system to replace septic tanks.
  4. Roads – meeting with and corresponding with Norfolk County Council Highways Department to reduce flooding, repair the roads and fill potholes.
  5. Playing Fields – providing funding for the maintenance of the playing fields in Barney and Fulmodeston.
  6. Rights of Way – communicating with landowners and NCC Rights of Way officers to ensure that paths are kept open and accessible for all.
  7. Traffic Management [Speeding] – in the past the PC has supported a Speedwatch scheme throughout the parish. This was discontinued because of lack of volunteers. A new SAM 2 speed measurement system in currently under consideration [see the PC Agenda for 24th July] – volunteers are needed.
  8. North Norfolk District Council and Norfolk County Council – liaison with our elected District and County Councillors [who are usually in attendance at PC meetings].
  9. PC meetings – 6 meetings are held each year with agendas and Minutes placed on 3 parish noticeboards and on the parish website. The meetings are open to the public and an opportunity to speak and express views is always provided.
  10. Police – a police representative is always invited to attend meetings. Unfortunately there has been no police officer at our meetings for many months. The Police and Crime Commissioner tells me that this is due to the severe reductions in police numbers following budget cuts.
  11. Precept – the PC is financed by a precept set each year. The amount appears within, and is collected through, your annual council tax bill from the District Council. We are currently supporting a Wells Town Council initiative in trying to get the 5% second homes tax paid direct to parish and town councils rather than into the District and County general budget. Audited accounts are published annually.
  12. Property – the council owns 4 plots of land, all in Barney, which are let out by tender on a 3 year cycle. The PC also owns the 3 bus shelters and 3 noticeboards in the parish. The PC provides insurance for these assets. The PC financially supports the 2 parish newsletters.
  13. Clerk – the PC employs a part-time clerk to overlook the clerical and admin role of the council and to advise the councillors on procedure.
  14. Elections – parish councillors are elected every 4 years and are unpaid. Between elections casual vacancies may be filled by co-option. There are currently 6 councillors and 1 vacancy. In recent years no councillors have claimed any expenses, although they are perfectly entitled to. The PC elects a Chair and Vice-Chair annually from within the council. Details of all current councillors [parish, district and county] and the clerk are on all the noticeboards and on the website.
  15. The PC has certain powers in respect of burial grounds and cemeteries covered by Acts of Parliament from 1906 onwards.
  16. Grants – the PC can source grants for parish assets and give small grants to external organisations [e.g. Air Ambulance, Citizens Advice Bureau, etc]

Parish Council Meeting AGM – 22nd May 2017 Old School Hall

Notice of Vacancy in Office of Councillor

Parish Council Meeting – April 3rd at 7.30pm

FULMODESTON AND BARNEY PARISH COUNCIL

Councillors are summoned to attend the next meeting

to be held on 3rd April 2017 at 7.30 p.m in the Old School Hall, Fulmodeston.

The meeting is open to the public.

Agenda

Mains Drainage : Anglian Water

Mains Drainage : Anglian Water

 Fulmodeston Parish Councillors are meeting with technical staff from Anglian Water early in April to be briefed on the current proposals for Mains Drainage in Barney, Croxton and Fulmodeston. This will also be an opportunity to raise and to discuss questions/concerns/problems which might arise before/during/after the work [scheduled for 2018/19?]. There will be a public meeting with Anglian Water which all parishioners will be invited to attend and to discuss the proposals and ask any questions. Hopefully a more detailed plan of the proposals will be available before that public meeting.

However, it would be of great assistance to both the councillors and Anglian Water if some of those concerns could be raised now to enable them to be made known to Anglian Water at the earlier meeting.

Would you therefore send a note of your thoughts/concerns to Nigel Janes, Chairman, Fulmodeston Parish Council 01328 878648 nigel.janes@googlemail.com before 27th March.
