The Parish Council
The parish council consists of seven local councillors, elected every four years, or co-opted in between.
We are there to listen to your views, represent you in meetings locally and at a borough level. Important roles of the council include: considering planning applications and development proposals, feeding into the Hilltop Parishes Neighbourhood Plan and Calderdale’s Local Plan, engaging with community activities and making sure that issues that are important locally are actioned at a borough level. We also manage the Charlestown Allotment site and Great Rock.
Councillors are also there to help parishioners in case of an emergency and at any time.
The Council can also give small grants to fund local activities or groups which benefit the whole parish. Applications can be made via the Clerk.
The Clerk is the person who coordinates the business of the council, and is appointed by them rather than elected.
Information about meetings including agendas and minutes can be found on this website and also on the parish notice boards, below the Chapel on Badger Lane, and by the bus stop opposite Wood Villas in Charlestown.
