Lymm Parish Council Structure
The Parish Council consists of 12 members. In order to manage Council business and expand resources in a way that delivers best value for money, the Council has adopted a committee structure.
The full Council still makes the most important decisions, such as setting the precept but some committees have delegated authority to make decisions in certain areas.
All meetings of the Parish Council and its committees are open to the Public and Press, except where items of a confidential nature are being discussed.
|RESOURCES||The Resources Committee is responsible for the management and oversight of all matters related to the Council finances. It is also responsible for setting the rental charges for the hall and for programming repairs and maintenance.|
|ENVIRONMENT||The Environment Committee meets bimonthly to consider recommendations from the environment working group. The working group is attended by representatives from local environmental groups.|
|STAFFING||The Staffing Committee meets when required to consider staffing matters including reviewing salaries, positions, performance and policies.|
|PLANNING||The Planning Committee meets every three weeks and is responsible for the Council’s function as a statutory consultee on planning application. The Committee submits responses to Warrington Borough Council on all applications.|
|EVENTS||The Events Committee meets when required to support the various volunteer groups that run events in the village.|
