About The Council

Romanby Parish Council, like all Parish and Town Councils in England, represents the first tier of local government - the one closest and most accessible to the electors. The Council is made up of 12 volunteer Councillors supported by a paid, part time clerk.

The Councillors represent all the electors of Romanby and have to stand for election every four years. The Parish Council is not a political body and Councillors do not represent any political party when working for the Parish Council.

The aim of the Parish Council is to work with parishioners and others,

  • to understand the aspirations of residents and the issues affecting them
  • to promote the appropriate and sustainable development of Romanby and facilities in the Parish, and
  • to ensure that Romanby continues to be a safe and enjoyable place to live, work and play, now and in the future.

The Parish Council also has a number of objectives and some very important duties.

Objectives

  • To engage, whenever possible, with residents, to understand their needs, and to explain how the Council will address these needs within the resources and powers available.
  • To provide high quality, cost effective relevant services and to enable, assist and encourage other organisations and agencies to provide services within the parish.
