Parish Council

About Keele Parish Council

The Parish Council is the first tier of local government.  It is an elected body and is responsible for an area known as a civil parish.  The term of office of a parish councillor is four years, and councils are elected en bloc.
All Parish Council meetings are open to the public. They are led by the Council’s Chairman and advised by a Clerk who is there to see that business is conducted within the law.
Parish councils have the power to precept (tax) their residents to support their operations and to carry out local projects. Although there is no limit to the amount that can be precepted, the money can only be raised for a limited number of purposes, defined in the 1894 Act and subsequent legislation.
