The Parish Council exists to represent the interests of the whole of Hampton Vale and Hampton Hargate Parish.
The Council is non-party political and is made up of Parish Councillors who are local residents. Considering local residents’ concerns, needs and aspirations is at the heart of the Parish Council’s work and ensuring effective communication within and beyond the Parish is key. Hampton Parish Council therefore very much welcomes questions, opinions and concerns from residents, and values their presence at its Parish Council meetings.
The Parish Council’s main role is to ensure that the delivery of services to meet local needs is maintained and enhanced; and that the quality of life in the community and the environment of the Parish are improved. It’s true to say that on their own, parish councils have limited powers to make executive decisions but they do have the ability to negotiate with, and the power to influence, other organisations that do make the final decisions, such as other tiers of local government, health authorities, the police etc.
