CO-OPTION counCillor VACANcY breage parish council

CO-OPTION VACANCY BREAGE PARISH COUNCIL

Breage Parish Council is looking to co-opt a Member to the Parish Council

The person co-opted must receive a majority of votes of those councillors present and voting at the meeting at which the co-option takes place. Parish Councillors are volunteers who give up their time to try and make the Parish a better place to live and work. They have a range of powers and duties over local facilities and make decisions, which affect Parishioner’s everyday lives. A Parish Council is a separate legal, corporate entity. First created by the Local Government Act of 1894 in most rural areas, the current consolidated legislation is that of 1972. Councillors are not paid and have to abide by a local government code of conduct and declare a personal or prejudicial interest if they have an interest in any matter under discussion at a parish council meeting. To appreciate what is involved in being a Parish Councillor you need to know what a Parish Council is, and what it can and cannot do. The Parish Council is nothing to do with the Church or the Diocese; nor is it a voluntary and community sector body. Your Parish Council is the local authority closest to the electorate.

The Parish Council may provide services for the local people. These range from recreation grounds and play areas, to cemeteries and allotments. There is a list of the activities that a Parish Council has the power to provide. Like any statutory body it can only do the things for which the law or any governing document gives a power.

The Parish Council has one particular asset that is extremely valuable – it has the ability to set a Precept, (sum of money), which is collected from all residents through the Council Tax system. With the right to levy a form of taxation come some duties. In particular there is a duty to behave in an ethical manner according to a Code of Conduct (declaring interests and leaving the room when likely to be prejudiced) and a duty to have the annual accounts subjected to audit under the aegis of the Audit Commission.

Training is available and support will be found from colleagues and the Clerk to the Council.

All elected Councillors retire after a four year term, but casual vacancies may well arise in the intervening period. The next full elections will be in May 2021.

To become a Parish Councillor you will need to be 18 years old or over on the day of your nomination and a British citizen, an eligible Commonwealth citizen or a citizen of any other member state of the European Union and meet at least one of the following four qualifications:

  1. be registered as a local government elector for the parish;
  2. have during the whole of the preceding twelve months occupied as owner or tenant, any land or premises in the parish;
  3. your principal or only place of work during the preceding twelve months has been in the parish;
  4. have during the whole of the preceding twelve months resided in the parish or within 4.8 km thereof.

Certain people are disqualified from becoming Councillors. You cannot be a candidate if you:

  • work for the Parish or hold paid office under the council which has the vacancy; or
  • are the subject of a bankruptcy restrictions order or interim order; or
  • have been sentenced to a term of imprisonment of three months or more (including a suspended sentence) without the option of a fine, in the past five years; or
  • have been disqualified under any enactment relating to corrupt or illegal practices.

The Council meets on the first Tuesday of each month, apart from January and September when it is the second Tuesday,

and also on the Thursday before each Ordinary Parish Council Meeting to discuss and vote on planning and land use matters.

Should you be interested in this vacancy you must be sure that you are eligible to stand and then formally make application in writing to the Clerk giving some personal details: former work; committees; family; interests; how long you have been in the Parish; why you wish to be a Councillor, etc. You are welcome to do this by e-mail. This should be done by Friday 26 July 2019. You will then be asked to attend the Parish Council meeting on Tuesday 6 August at 7.00 p.m. when a vote will be taken. Before you make your decision to apply and if you have never attended a Parish Council Meeting before, you may wish to attend the Planning meeting on 1 August and to obtain some idea of agendas and procedures.

ASHTON AMENITY FIELD PLAY EQUIPMENT

The Play Equipment for Ashton Field has now been installed. Grants were received from the National Lottery Awards for All and from Viridor Credits Environmental Company and that paid for the equipment and installation. The Parish Council thanks the Lottery and Viridor for their wonderful grants.

The equipment is ready to use. There is to be an official opening but a date has not yet been set. There is one picture below but there are also swings, a roundabout, a climbing wall and 2 springy animals.

Enjoy.

REMEMBERING CLLR TONY ACKLAND who Recently died

REMEMBERING

CLLR TONY ACKLAND

WHO RECENTLY DIED

Tony served as a Breage Parish Councillor for many years, including time as Chairman. A wonderful Councillor and a wonderful friend, so caring and always having time for other people’s troubles. He was Chairman of Carleen Village Hall and many of you will remember him in the pantomimes there.

He had cancer and fought it valiantly but the time came when sadly nothing else could be done for him.

We remember his family at this so very sad time for them.

His funeral will be held at Camborne Crematorium at 10.00 a.m. on Friday 5th April.

Please note that the Parish Rooms will be closed that day in respect for Cllr Tony Ackland.

WE WILL REMEMBER HIM

Public Drop-in

ENVIRONMENT AGENCY creating a better place for people and wildlife

Proposed Pengwedna Chicken Farm Published: Feb 2019

Review of permit application for egg laying chicken farm at Pengwedna Poultry Farm, Nancegollan

We will be holding a public drop-in at Nancegollan village hall on 26 February 2019 from 12pm to 7pm.

Environment Agency employees will be at the hall to explain the permit application process and our decisions to date. They will also explain what the permit does and does not cover along with what further issues and concerns that can and cannot be considered in the final stages of the decision-making process.

The environmental permit applied for relates to the control of emissions from the facility on the environment and people’s health.  It does not relate to issues such as the choice of location of the site, traffic movements to/from the site, visual impact, operating hours and light pollution.

Copies of the application documents can be seen online at:
