Who we are

Your Parish Council is a non-political body whose purpose is to serve the community of Marshchapel to the best of its ability.

Your Parish Council is the ‘local’ contact between the community of Marshchapel and the East Lindsey District Council and the Lincolnshire County Council.  We deal with matters as diverse as planning applications to public footpaths and are consulted on a wide variety of matters and asked for opinions and comments.  The ultimate decision on planning matters rests with the District Council, although our views are taken into consideration.

A precept is set once a year, which raises funds via the Council Tax, for use in the village. This supports projects such as the Playing Field, Village Hall, War Memorial maintenance and the Churchyard, amongst many others.

Members of the public are welcome to attend any of our meetings but if you have an item you would like to discuss, then please let the Clerk know well in advance of the meeting so that it can be put on the Agenda.

During May each year we hold an Annual Parish Meeting, details of which are posted on the village notice board, which members of the public can attend.  At this meeting a resume of the past year is given and our accounts are open for inspection.  Our accounts are audited annually by an external auditor.

From time to time a casual vacancy may occur on the Council, this will be advertised on the notice board and residents will have the opportunity to put themselves forward for co-option.  Alternatively residents have the opportunity to be elected to the Parish Council every four years.  The next election will be in May 2019.
