Council Communications – Keeping people well informed about what your Parish Council is doing is vital to build trust and confidence. We are constantly reviewing the communication channels that we have to find the most appropriate way of keeping residents informed. We have created this website to act as a hub for our community and we are also active on Social Media. We will also circulate a regular newsletter .
We have started to refurbish the notice boards so that everyone in the community can use them. See notes below regarding their use.
General power of competency – We are considering adopting “the general power of competency” as outlined in the 2011 Localism Act. This will give Romsley Parish Council the ability to step in and deliver a range of additional functions and services to our community if and when we can afford them.
Parish Council Notice Boards
Throughout the Parish (as part of continued maintenance) we will be upgrading the Parish Council noticeboards. The new noticeboards will have no glass casing and will be completely open. The first example of these can be found next to the butchers in St Kenelms Road.
We are doing this because the glass cabinet board types tended to steam up and get dirty – meaning the contents are unreadable. We also wanted to open up the boards to be used by the whole Parish.
Anyone in the Parish are free to use the Parish Council noticeboards – however we would be grateful if you would adhere to the following policy.
- Community notice boards are the property of Romsley Parish Council.
