The Council as a Corporate Body
Parish Councils, including Charley Parish Council, were created by statute in 1894 and have the power to raise money through taxation known as the precept; there is a range of powers for the Council to spend public money.
The Council is a single corporate body in law and no part can operate in isolation. All decisions made by the Council are the responsibility of the Council as a whole.
The Council has a duty to ensure that all the rules for the administration of the council are followed and it is responsible for developing policies, monitoring performance and evaluating the activities undertaken.
The Parish Council is the 'grass root' tier of local government and has the ability to be closest to the community which it serves and represents. Charley Parish Council takes every effort to serve its community fairly and equally taking into consideration different interests and concerns.
The Parish Council meets every other month at 7.30 p.m. in the Oaks Storer Hall, Oaks in Charnwood (next to the Church of St James the Greater)
and residents and interested parties are welcome to attend.
Charley Parish Council has a part-time Clerk, Mr Brian Duncombe. He can be contacted on non urgent matters between the hours of 16.00 and 18.00. Should you need urgent advice and Mr Duncombe is not available, please contact any of the Councillors.
