Your Local Parish Councillors:
Several of the councillors were originally elected to the council by co-option. This is the process whereby a council can choose a candidate to fill a vacant seat if a vacancy has not been filled by election. (A vacant seat can be caused by insufficient candidates at an election or by a vacancy arising during the term of the council.)
Becky French – Clerk (Appointed Feb 2017)
The clerk is the chief officer and responsibilities include advising the council and administration of the council’s affairs. The clerk is an independent and objective officer who takes instructions from the council as the corporate body and not from individual councillors. The RFO has specific duties relating to the budget, the accounts and financial management of the council.
