Parish Councils form the lowest tier of local government. Stowe-IX-Churches Parish
Council has seven parish councillors who are taken to be elected representatives
of the parish’s residents, and are subject to election by parishioners every 4 years.
The parish clerk is employed by the council and is responsible for implementing the
Council’s decisions and policies. To fund its costs the Parish Council sets a precept
which is included in the Council Tax.
As a very small parish we do not have the facilities normally managed by parish councils
such as street lighting, cemeteries, playing fields and village halls but nevertheless
we have a duty to work for the benefit of the whole community. We liaise with the
district and county council to ensure resources are deployed to rectify problems
of communal concern – e.g. degraded roads and footpaths, fly-tipping and other environmental
issues. We are also responsible for the upkeep of the war and radar memorials.
We are consulted on all planning matters, both planning applications and planning
policy. Our aim is to uphold policies which are designed to maintain the small village
character of the parish which we believe most residents value.
Almost all Parish Council meetings are open to the public, and their dates are advertised
in the village newsletter and on notice boards. We encourage parish residents to
attend. If you tell us your views we will be better able to promote your interests.
