Alderton Parish Council exists to serve you
Alderton Parish Council is the local decision-making executive for the Parish with powers to determine local affairs and budgets in a variety of areas.
We're a body of local representatives, elected to represent and administer Alderton Parish Council every four years. The council meets on the third Tuesday every 2 months, and all council sessions are open for the public to watch and dates and times of these sessions are published well in advance.
The council elects (and has the power to substitute) the Parish Council Chairperson. This person always represents the whole council and acts as the spokesperson for the Parish Council on all public occasions and chairs the council itself.
The Code of Conduct applies to Parish Councillors whenever they act in an official capacity. The Code does not seek to regulate what Members do in their purely private and personal lives.
The Standing Orders describe how Alderton Parish Council should be organised and run and the roles of the various members.
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.
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
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.
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.
