Alderton Parish Council

The council exists to serve you.

Your council is a corporate body, a legal entity separate from that of its members. Its decisions are the responsibility of the whole body. The council has been granted powers by Parliament including the important authority to raise money through taxation (the precept) and a range of powers to spend public money.

Standing Orders 


The Standing Orders describe how Alderton Parish Council should be organised and run and the roles of the various members.

Financial Regulations


The Financial Regulations govern the conduct of financial management by the council. Financial regulations must be observed in conjunction with the council’s standing orders and any individual financial regulations relating to contracts.

Risk Assessments

The Parish Council will undertake a Health and Safety Risk Assessment on an annual basis. The findings will be reported to the full Parish Council along with any actions required to remove or control the risks

Complaints Procedure

Not all queries or concerns raised are treated as ‘complaints’ and Alderton Parish Council is keen to ensure that any problems are resolved in an honest and effective way, in order that they do not develop into complaints. However, if you are not satisfied with any of the Parish Council’s services, or are unhappy about an action or lack of action by this Council, this Complaints Policy sets out how you may complain to the Council and how we shall try to resolve your complaint.


All complaints received by the Parish Council will be dealt with confidentially.

Document Retention

Alderton Parish Council recognises that the efficient management of its records is necessary to comply with its legal and regulatory obligations and to contribute to the effective overall management of the Parish Council. This document provides the policy framework through which this effective management can be achieved and audited.
