What we do

What does Aymestrey Parish Council Do?

The Council has the right of representation on planning matters, which includes all planning applications and structure plan proposals.

The Council also watches over footpaths, bridleways and rights of way.  A small portion of your Council Tax comes to the Parish Council  for this purpose. (see precept)

What can Parish Councils do?

Parish Councils have a range of powers (things they can do), which is laid down in law.

There is a much shorter list of duties (things they must do).
Some of the powers are historic, such as the power to provide public bath houses.

You can read more about this in the Good Councillor’s Guide available from the National Association of Local Councils website.
