Working Groups

The Parish Council as the parent body can form a Working Group to carry out specific detailed tasks on any matter that falls within its powers. Full Council may form or disband a Working Party that will carry out tasks defined by Full Council.

The purpose of Working Groups formed from both councillors and members of the public is to meet to discuss issues, explore options and develop plans and then report back to the Council with recommendations. They have no decision-making powers but present the Council with their findings.

When setting up a Working Group, the Council must set clear terms of reference for it regarding objectives, scope and outcome(s). The Council will approve these. Once their work has been completed, the Working Group will be disbanded.
