Welcome to Overthorpe Parish Council.
Overthorpe Parish Council is democratically elected once every four years to help provide and enhance local services within the Parish, and provides a vital link to District and County Councils and other agencies on local issues.
The Parish council raises a precept (a local rate) which is collected by the district council as part of the council tax.
Overthorpe Parish Councillors have an active interest and concern for the local community. They represent local people and work in partnership with them and others when necessary. They help facilitate the provision of local services and facilities and take decisions that form the policy of the Council. Councillors are not paid and have to abide by a local government code of conduct and declare their financial interests in the parish. Councillors must also declare a personal or prejudicial interest in any matter under discussion at a parish council meeting. You can find out more about the Parish Councillors here.
Members of the Parish are welcome to attend Parish Council Meetings and the agenda and minutes of previous meetings are available to download. Financial Information and other Parish Documents are also available to download.
