Parish Council

Introduction

Peover Superior Parish Council (or OPPC) provides democratic representation for Parish residents, especially in dealings with Cheshire East Council.

OPPC has a complement of 8 elected Councillors and employs the services of a Parish Clerk (see Who’s Who). The Council liaises with Cheshire East Council, with the Village Hall Management Committee, and with other groups in the Parish.

The Council receives details of Village Planning Applications (and subsequent decisions) from Cheshire East Council, and is invited to make comments on these Applications.

Finance

The Parish Council is funded directly by residents of Over Peover, via precept from Cheshire East (total £10,000 per annum in 2014/2015). Councillors receive no salary, the Clerk receives an annual fee, and payments of disbursements and expenses are subject to approval and minute during OPPC meetings. The Council managed funds and disbursements for the 2006-2011 Parish Plan activities. further details of the parish finances can be found on the Parish Council finance page.

Members are required to comply with a Code of Conduct and the Council’s Standing Orders.

Meetings

Meetings are held 10 times per year, currently in Over Peover Village Hall on Stocks Lane, usually starting at 19:45 on the last Tuesday of the month (no meeting August or December).

Meetings are open to the press and public. Please confirm meeting arrangements, venue and agenda on this website or via noticeboards.

The Village annual meeting usually takes place to follow the March Parish Council meeting (PC meeting 19:00-20:00, annual meeting starts at 20:00)

Residents may raise items of concern by prior notice via the Clerk.

Please check meeting agenda notices for start time and venue (see Meeting Dates & Agendas on this website, and the main OPPC noticeboard in the Village).
