What is a Parish Council?

It is a statutory local authority set up under the Local Government Act 1972. It operates in the area of a defined civil parish or group of parishes. In Cumbria there are three types of local authority - the County Council (Cumbria County Council), the District or Borough Councils (Eden District Council) and the Town or Parish Councils.


Who is on the council?

The council is made up of councillors elected by the electors of the parish. Every year the council elects one of them to be the Chairman of the council.  The council has a paid officer who organises meetings and helps to carry out the council's decisions - this officer is usually called the Clerk. The Clerk does not vote or make decisions; that is the role of the councillors. (From Cumbria Association of Local Councils website).
