What services your Parish Council provides.

What Services Does Tarporley Parish Council Provide

The Parish Council is the tier of local government closest to the people, as such one of its key roles is representing the Parish in formal consultations in many matters relating to both Government and other aspects of village life. The Parish Council obtains its powers through a wide range of statutes which both allow and regulate its activities. The main activities undertaken by the Tarporley Parish Council include:-

Planning

The Parish Council is consulted by the planning authority on all developments affecting the village and responds to all applications. The Councils adopted policy is as outlined and presented in the Neighbourhood Plan.

Consultation

The Parish Council has the right to be consulted on many local and national government issues and provides a local perspective in responses to consultation requests.

Security

Security consideration including liaison with the local Constabulary and Police Authority is a regular activity of the Parish Council. As part of the Cheshire Rural Policing scheme P.C.S.O. Kenny Williamson spends time in and around the village. The P. C.S.O. attends the regular Parish Council meeting and residents are invited to come and discuss any matters of concern.. In an emergency, call 999 non-emergency call 101

Tarporley is covered by the Local Policing team based in Winsford under Chief Inspector Simon Meegan.

Highways and Street Lighting

The condition of highways and footways and the operation of street lighting is monitored and problems reported to the highway and street lighting authorities for action. An agreed plan of small maintenance work is regularly reviewed with the highway authority.

You can report any issues on highways, footpaths or lighting, e.g. potholes, broken pavements or faulty street lights, using Cheshire West & Chester Council’s Interactive Mapping System.

Community Centre

The village Community Centre is run by an independent charity that provides and maintains the Community Centre for the benefit of the village. The Parish Council supports the Community Centre via an annual support grant related to specific projects. Details of what’s on, rooms available and how to book rooms at the Community Centre can be found on their website: www.tarporleycc.co.uk

Village Maintenance

The Parish Council owns notice boards, seats, a shelter and litter bins and maintains these and a range of other assets around the Parish..

Flower Displays
