Who we are & what we do

Crick Parish Council came into existence in 1894. The Parish Council's offices are at The Old School, Church Street, Crick, NN6 7TP.

Crick Parish Council has 11 seats and is non-political in make-up. Councillors are elected every 4 years to represent Crick but Councillors can, of course, decide to submit themselves for re-election and continue to serve longer.

The Parish Council's responsibilities include open spaces, burial ground, street lights and setting a precept for services provided and work for the benefit of the entire community.

The Council has no Committees but a number of active Working Groups

- Traffic Management Working Group (Cllr Parsons and Cllr Harding)
- Open Space Working Group (Council members to be agreed)
- Playing Field Working Group (Cllr Jones, TBC)
- Crick Good Neighbour Working Group (Cllr Harding)

Meetings of the Parish Council are held on the third Monday of every month at The Old School. The Annual Parish Meeting is held between March and May of each year and the Annual Parish Council meeting is held in May.

Crick Parish Council has adopted a Code of Conduct, which sets out the rules that govern the behaviour of its members. All elected and co-opted Members are required to adhere to this Code of Conduct and must complete a declaration of interest form to register their financial interests and other interests. Any suspected breaches of the code can be referred to the Monitoring Officer.

The principal roles of an elected Councillor are:

- To represent the interests of all residents in their ward
- To offer advice and assistance on Council services
- To decide Council policy, monitor performance and scrutinise decisions made.
