Parish Council

The Parish Council is an elected body comprising eight Councillors whose sole function is to ensure that the village is efficiently and economically run using a proportion of the Annual Council Tax Income.  It is a type of local authority and has a number of statutory powers which it is allowed to exercise if it so wishes.

In a village like Fornham All Saints the Parish Council monitors street lighting, emptying of litter and dog bins. looks after the play areas and village greens. It is also involved in helping to maintain or guarding such amenities as rights of way (e.g. footpaths), the bus shelters, the War Memorial, the public benches within the village and the Village Sign. It helps to provide newsletters and undertakes village surveys and aims to help safeguard the community in which you live.

The Council meets every other month generally on the third Thursday of the month at the Village Hall to discuss current village issues. Members of the public are encouraged to attend these meetings and have the opprotunity during the meeting to raise any topic relating to Fornham All Saints to the Council for consideration. There is also an opportunity for comments by the District or County Councillors and members of the Bury Rural SaferNeighbourhood Team.

Meeting arrangements are displayed on the three village notice boards and the Parish Clerk ensures that parishioners are advised of Council Meetings as well as Parish and District Council and Parialmentary elections.

If anyone wishes to raise any issues for discussion please feel free to come along to the meetings or email the Clerk who will raise them on your behalf (fornhamallsaints@gmail.com)
