We have a wide range of powers which essentially relate to local matters, such as looking after community buildings, open space, allotments, play areas, street lighting, bus shelters, car parks and much more. They also have the power to raise money through the council tax.
There are 2 common misunderstandings about the role of Parish Councillors. They are not employees or volunteers, we are elected or co-opted representatives who give their time for free to work on behalf of the residents of Witham St Hughs.
Your Councillors are…. Cllr Karen Harrison – Chair, Cllr Jason Snape – Vice Chair, Cllr Roger Linnell, Cllr Tony Young, Cllr Russell Eckert and Cllr Peter Rothwell
Parish Clerk Nicola Green, Any queries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
