I thought it would be useful if I took this opportunity to outline what Hagley Parish Council does and is responsible for.

A Parish Council is the most local level of government and has specific areas of responsibility and activity. These include representing the local community, supporting services to meet local needs and striving to improve quality of life in the parish.

HPC sits within the governance of Bromsgrove District Council and Worcestershire County Council and whilst it will make representations to these higher 'parent' authorities, they have ultimate responsibility for local issues such as planning and highways with wider responsible falling to authorities such as Policing, Healthcare and Education being administered through their own authority bodies.

HPC has responsibility for such things as the allotments; the village cemetery, shoppers’ car park; community dial a ride; bus shelters; grounds maintenance, litter picking in and around the playing field, cemetery and Sweetpool Nature Reserve; supports the environmental betterment of the village including litter picking along the 'High Street', outside the schools and passageways. In addition to these we maintain the street lighting and pay for the power costs; traffic calming measures and where possible support local community groups and initiatives such as the Christmas events and the Library.

As councillors we are unpaid and meet twice a month to make decisions on the work and direction of the council. In addition to formal Council meetings we attend special meetings and working groups, including meetings with the Highway Authority, Police and schools.

At our fortnightly meeting we ask for updates from District Councillors and the County Councillor to which we will ensure that they are held to account and that the greater good of Hagley is represented.

Each year the Parish Council raises a 'precept', which is used to fulfil the parish duties and to improve facilities and services for local people. On average, HPC costs local residents about 15p per day.
