Policies and Procedures

Standing Orders

The law controls how our Parish Council acts and in addition the Parish Council can agree their own procedures.  Together these rules make up our ‘Standing Orders’ which govern our actions.   These Standing Orders are regularly reviewed and formally agreed by the whole council.    Our current Standing Orders are available to view at the bottom of this page.
