The functions of Fremington Parish Council

Most local Council services are provided by the District or County Council. The Parish Council’s role is more advisory and its main purpose is local community leadership. Although not directly responsible for many services, the Parish Council can, therefore, have influence over a wide range of issues. It is frequently consulted on highways, use of public areas, environmental improvements and the provision or alteration of local facilities, as well as every planning application.
