Parish Council


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

PSSP has a complement of 11 elected Councilors 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 both Over Peover and Snelson Village’s Planning Applications (and subsequent decisions) from Cheshire East Council, and is invited to make comments on these Applications.

To find out what else the Parish Council does see the annual calendar and roles and responsibilities.


The Parish Council is funded directly by residents of Over Peover and Snelson, via precept from Cheshire East. Councilors receive no salary, the Clerk receives an annual fee, and payments of disbursements and expenses are subject to approval and minuted during PSSP 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 are held 10 times per year, currently in Over Peover Village Hall on Stocks Lane, usually starting at 5pm on the second Tuesday of the month (no meetings in 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.

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