Town and Parish Councils have a wide range of legal duties and powers, such as the maintenance of community buildings and land and much more. They have the power to raise money through the local council tax.
Woodland Parish Council also manages and maintains a number of local facilities including:
manages and maintains the Play Area
maintains the seats, and footpaths of the Parish
makes awards of grants that benefit residents of the Parish.
The work of Woodland Parish Council is funded by a precept or charge on the council tax of residents in the parish. In 2021/22 this equates to a charge of £26.96 for a band D house.
In the future it is possible that the Parish Council will have an even greater involvement in the provision of local services.
The Parish Council meets every 3 months in Woodland Village Hall and members of the public are welcome to attend meetings. Agendas and minutes of meetings are published on this website and are posted on the Parish Council notice boards
The website is maintained by the Parish Council and seeks to provide information on local social activities, essential services and other matters of interest to the community. This aspect will develop over time and the Parish Council welcomes any suggestions to make this site more useful to residents and visitors to the area.
