The Council adopted the title of 'Parish Council' at its formation, however, its responsibilities and powers are identical to those as a Town Council.

All parish/town council's operate using Powers & Duties.

Duties are functions or procedures the Council must carry out by law and Powers are functions or services that the Council may carry out.
