Parish Council | Chadwick End Parish Council
Welcome to the website for Chadwick End Parish Council. Chadwick End Parish Council aims to ensure that our community continues to be an attractive and safe place in which to live.
Have you ever wondered what happens at Parish Council meetings? Come along and find out at our next meeting – they are usually held on the second Thursday of every other month at the village hall.
A Parish Council is the level of elected government that is closest to the community. Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council provides support at a higher level. Being close to the community, Parish Councils and Councillors are very often the first place local people will go with concerns or ideas. For this reason they play a vital part in village life often making decisions on behalf of all the Parishioners. Because of this, a Parish Councillor must have a passion for making a difference within their local community, recognising the needs of the Parishioners while taking into consideration the legal boundaries in which they work.
The number of Councillors making up a parish council varies with the size of the parish – in Chadwick End we have five. They are elected to serve for a period of usually four years. Their work is entirely voluntary and Councillors do not receive any payment for carrying out their role.
Thought about making a difference yourself? We currently have a vacancy for a Parish Councillor to join our existing team of four, co-opted until May 2019. Why not give it a go! Contact Parish Clerk at email@example.com for details.
Details of the current Councillors, and their Parish Clerk, are included in the Who’s Who section of this website – part of the home page.
