Who we are & what we do
Peak Forest Parish Council is independent of all political party policies and consists of 5 members who are unpaid and give their time freely to the community. The Clerk, who works part-time and is paid, supports the Parish Council by dealing with all correspondence and administration. The Clerk is also the 'Responsible Financial Officer', and as such is accountable for proper use of public funds.
The Parish Council is responsible for the recreation ground, including the playground area. The Council is also the Custodial Trustee of the Reading Room.
What does your Parish Council do?
The council usually meets on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm in the Reading Room. At these meetings the council discusses and makes decisions within its powers and responsibilities on issues affecting the community it represents.
The Parish Council does not have committees. All decisions are made by Full Council.
The Parish Clerk is the only member of staff and paid employee of this Parish Council. She can be contacted by phone, e-mail or post. If you have a problem to report, this can also be done online.
