ROLE OF PARISH COUNCIL
Parishes are the smallest areas of civil administration in England and their Town and Parish Councils provide the statutory tier of local government closest to the people.
The Parish Council is elected every four years. In North Yorkshire there are three tiers of local government – the County Council, District/Borough Councils and Town/Parish Councils.
Slingsby, South Holme and Fryton Parish Council is an essential part of the structure of local democracy and has a vital role in acting on behalf of the community.
The Parish Council:
- gives views, on behalf of the community, on planning applications and other proposals that affect the parish
- undertakes small projects and schemes that benefit local residents
- works in partnership with other bodies to achieve benefits for the parish
- alerts relevant authorities to problems that arise or work that needs to be undertaken
- helps the other tiers of local government keep in touch with their local communities
The Parish Council also oversees the Slingsby Poors’ Land Charity. A link can be found on the Charity Commission Website. Charity 234269
The Clerk to the Council is also the Clerk to the Slingsby Poors’ Land Charity and the Trustees are Cllr Wilson, Cllr Shepherd and Mrs Snowball. The Parish Council appoints the trustees to this charity.
The Parish Clerk is also Clerk to Slingsby Burial Board for burials in Green Dyke Lane Cemetery. The Cemetery Regulations can be found HERE.
